My English Springer Spaniel Dog is about 5 yrs old. She is and has lost a lot of hair to the point that she has bald spots. What can I do?

First thing would be taking the dog to the vet. Animals can get fleas, ticks, and other parasites that irritate the skin to the point that a dog will chew at their side. Also you may want to have the dog tested for common diseases or allergies. Since Springers love the water and mud they need to be bathed regularly and could be allergic to the shampoo. Also over bathing can dry out the skin causing irritation.

You can also have a blood test for Thyroid problems.
