Ginsy has an area on her hip that is loosing hair.  no bumps ,swelling, redness or even itching.  just really thin hair and if I rub on it the hair comes out.
what could this be??

it is only on the one side.  when she lays down she doesn't seem to prefer one side so it isn't that she always lays on that side.  it is not alot of hair but still noticeable.

it has an irregualr shape, more patchy, and none completely bald.
and she doesn't seem to even notice it at all, no scratching or chewing

Could be mange?? When Buster got mange it started on his shoulder like that. I would take her in to the vet and have a skin scrape done. Could even be ringworm... It really could be anything. Could be nothing? I don't want to keep making guesses. Maybe a call to the vet and see what they reccommend. Keep us updated on Ginsy.  :wink:
