    Question: Last 2 weeks Bear has thinning hair on his face around his eyes.
    He has been scatching at his face several times a day. His appetitie has decreased even more than normal, he has never been a good eater.

    There is a skin parasite called Demodex which is a type of mite which can cause a loss of hair, and itchiness around the eyes. In addition, allergies can also cause the same signs. Does he tear more than usual from one or both eyes? Your vet should be able to do a skin scraping to determine whether he has demodex or some other skin parasite.
