Please somebody tell me what this could be? I took him to a vet and they couldn't see that anything was wrong. His parents were both long coat, I've tried everything to get his hair to go back to normal. This started happening around 8 weeks and has progressed to this at 4 months old. The changing seems to have stopped or slowed but I'm wondering whether his hair will ever go back to normal.

Did the vet do a skin scraping? If so, and that didn't show anything, perhaps it is Atopic seborrhea from inhaled allergens, or contact allergy. Or perhaps it's a food allergy.

Have you tried a medicated shampoo such as Sebozole or Malaseb?

What type of flea prevention do you use? Many dogs are highly allergic to fleas.

Did your vet do blood work? Having blood work done can tell you a lot on how your dogs body is working/condition. Hypothyroidism causes hair thinning/loss, so a thyroid test may be a good idea. Hope you can figure out what is going on.
