"I have a male pom, abt 5lbs. approx. a year old, with full baby coat. He is now starting to lose his coat on his rump and back of back legs and on his chest, but his skin is not turning black? Is that immediate or does it take awhile? He does have some of the bumps in front armpit that could be the described blackheads. Vet said we would check for thyroid next visit around April. He is quite active, playful and has a great appetite, very affectionate, otherwise great little dog. I just want to help him all I can.
Really glad to have found this website.
Could you send us some before and after photos of your Pomeranian. Also could we use the photos on this site?
It does take a little while for the skin to turn black and in some cases may not do so.
