    Default hair loss questions

    Hello all. Our Zoomie is 3 months and 3 weeks old. Recently she has been getting very thin hair on her sides, side of her neck and her tail is thinning. Her skin is not red and no signs of irritation. I have not noticed any excessive grooming. She continues to eat well. 2 henry's healthy blocks per day, variety of veggies from the pyramid (broccoli, cauliflower, lettuce, carrots, bock choy, sugar snap peas, brussel sprouts), some nuts and treats. My husband likes to give her too many nuts but he has cut back on that since I asked him too. She had pretty much weaned from her milk replacer but because of the hair loss I have offered that again. Sometimes she gobbles it up sometimes she could care less. Drinking good amounts of water as well. She gets plenty of light. I have included pictures of her hair, tail and her cage/house. I also took apart her nest and washed everything in there as well. We live in northern MN.

    Any ideas on what may be going on? Is she just molting and I am over reacting? Thank you for any feedback.

    I "think" it's molting...
    Usually when mange is that bad you'd see some crusting around ears, they appear clear.
    It wouldn't hurt to treat with some Revolution anyway to rule out any possibility of mites.

    You are correct, her ears are clear. Any guidance on where to get Revolution and how to do the dosing? Thank you.

    Revolution is Rx. Unless you know a vet that you could acquire it from or know someone with a dog or cat that might have some.
    It can be ordered on line from: https://www.joespetmeds.com/

    You would want to purchase (Original brand) Revolution for cats, suggested is cats up to 15 lbs.
    It is the same med as Puppies and kittens up to 5 lbs except you get more med for the same price.

    You do not want Revolution Plus or Revolution with Canex.

    FYI: When you go to menu to pick size of Breed Pack size & Quantity, click on wording for the drop down menu not the arrows.

    Dosing is 1-2 drops between the shoulder blades, repeat 10-14 days.
