Change in dogs fur texture.

I have a 9 year old rough collie. Her fur use to be fairly straight with a few crimped areas but as of a month ago her fur has been changing to curly. The curly areas are increasing every week. I brush her once to twice a week, so it is not a grooming problem. When I do brush her out, the fur turns back to curly. She did get fixed in November due to complications. Perhaps the change in hormones did this? It really isn't a big deal. I was just curious why the hair shape is suddenly different. Thanks!


Oh, and she eats higher quality food which she has been on for more than a year, so it probably isn't that.

I would say the texture change is most likely a result of the spay. I find spaying them really can change their coat, especially when the operation is done on an older girl.
