We have a 14 week old female puppy and she is also losing her coat. We discovered she had a small hernia at the same time her coat really started to change. Is this normal?


ive also got a 12 week old cavalier blenheim femal (belle) and she is really maulting but also as the other answer to your question she also has a small hernia so can anyone tell me whether this does have anything to do with why she is shedding and i mean its everywher e im suprised she has any fur left


Cavaliers normally go through heavier periods of shedding during the year. If it is winter they should shed less. I wouldn't be considered unless it is really a lot of hair and balding is appearing. Otherwise heavy shedding is common. And I don't think a hernia would affect shedding.


Have your puppy checked for demodectic mites.
