    I have this new puppy and it has just been losing hair and weight. She is a very happy and energetic puppy, but looks like a skeleton. She was the runt of the litter. She eats all the time and seems not to hold on to the weight. Her skin is flaky toward the tip of the ears.

    My about 6 to 7 month old lab puppy is very skinny losing hair in some spots. The spots are not red you cant feel them its like bald spots. She is so happy and loves to run and play and is so active. She does not ever look like she is in pain. She drinks a lot of water eats all her food. But she is also itchy all the time but there are no fleas
