M.L. Posted January 4, 2009 Report Share Posted January 4, 2009 I've recently noticed that the hair on Ginger's tail is changing into white, wirey hair. The rest of her hair is smooth and soft and always has been. The new hair on her tail feels wirey, like a terrier's hair. It is very strange. She is five years old. There are no bare patches or irritated spots. The hair is just completely changing from brown to this weird, wirey hair. The underside of her tail has always had white hair on it, but it has always been smooth and soft. She is a BC mix and I have no idea what else she is mixed with but she has never had any wirey feeling hair. I have included photos. They aren't the best quality since I quickly took them with my iPhone. I was trying to find a pic that clearly shows her tail before, but I can't find one. The top of her tail looked like the bottom half in the last photo - brown on top with a few white hairs here and there - but not wirey feeling. Are there any medical conditions that would cause the hair to change so much? Or is it just that she is getting older? This is after I spread the hair apart a bit.
