    Newman has lost some hair behind both of his ears(uncropped). He is just about 1 year old. Is this something that should alarm me? I am nervous, because it looks so bad. Does anyone have any advice, or and ideas as to what it might be?

    Julie you should take Newman to the vet. It could be any number of things but one of the likely possibilites is demodectic mange. Your vet can do a skin scrapping and find out for sure what it is.

    I going to transfer this topic to The Health Forum. It will be open there instead.
