    DefaultTessas coat is becoming thinner.

    Anyone had this with their Lab.

    I noticed it at first with her tail. She had the typical otta tail that Labs have and about 3 weeks ago thought what has happened to her tail. It looks like rats tail. During this last week her coat is noticeably thinner and that mane of thick fur around her neck has gone.

    Her coat is looking and feeling best it has ever been, but much thinner. Someone suggested if they are inside and a bit warm they don't get a winter coat. Seems odd as even in summer it isn't this thin.

    Its probably nothing but when you see hair loss on the tail you should consider seeing the vet for some tests.
