1/10/08 Hi, one of my Dachshunds had the same problem when she was 1 yr. old. I took her in to 2 vets and 1 told me that she had Allergies, either to her food, environment ie: dirt,grass, bedding, or dirt. They gave her a Cortisone shot and he told me to change her diet. I started her on Lamb & Rice (Natural Choice). 3 months later her hair started growing back. I also kept her away from dirt in the back yard. Good Luck, Marti. Marti
