I noticed yesterday that the dog has a small bald spot near his tail. As he's been scratching there a lot, it is clearly quite itchy. Any ideas what might be causing this? Parasites? Skin problem? I once had an older dog that this happened to and it turned out to be a grass allergy (according to the vet). I don't think that's the case here. And I can't figure out if the hair fell out and now he's itchy, or if all his scratching caused the hair to fall out. The bald spot is about the size of a nickel. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
