Thinning hair


Recommended Posts

While my lola was never a true long haired border collie, she used to be quite fluffy. In the past month or so, I noticed her hair has gotten really short and thin like a smooth border collie. She just hit a year old in october. I used to be able to flow my hands through it, now I cant. Could it be health related? Or just something that may happen with her genetics?

Has Lola been in season in the past couple months?  Bitches can really blow their coat a month or two after coming into heat.  If she's blown coat due to being in season it will grow back over the next couple months.  Fun fact:  the reason they used a male collie to play Lassie in movies and on TV was for exactly that reasons - to avoid the dramatic change in appearance due to seasonal cycles in coat growth and loss.
