Neglected Dog with Hair Loss Found in Lanarkshire

Neglected Lulu The Belgravia CentreA neglected dog with chronic dermatitis was found wandering the streets in a Lanarkshire town. A female Jack Russell, who is said to have been in “extreme pain”, was discovered to be suffering from a serious and painful skin condition. Named Lulu by animal rescue workers, the poor pup was handed into the Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre in Hamilton, where she has since been undergoing treatment for her skin condition.

Inspector Gillian Dick said: “Lulu is suffering from chronic dermatitis on her face and body. When she first arrived her skin was raw and bleeding from where she had been scratching to try and relieve the severe itch and the dermatitis has also resulted in significant hair loss. She would have been in extreme pain and discomfort and we’re very glad she was found so we could give her the help she needs.

“We’re urging anyone who recognises Lulu and knows who may have owned her to contact us as soon as possible. Lulu is responding well to medication and has already been offered a loving home by a lady who was visiting the centre when she was handed in. We’re hopeful Lulu will make a good recovery and will soon be able to start afresh with her new owner.”

Dermatitis and hair loss

Dogs aren’t the only ones to experience hair loss as a result of dermatitis. Seborrheic Dermatitis is a common cause of hair loss in adults. Also known as Seborrheic Eczema, this serious skin condition is caused by the build-up of a yeast called malassezia, along with the overproduction of oil on the skin.

This condition can present itself not only on the scalp but in other oily areas of the body, including around the nose and eyebrows. It can cause scaly patches, with red, itchy areas of skin. If these symptoms aren’t treated, it can lead to hair loss.

Treating Seborrheic Dermatitis

It is important to make sure shampoo is thoroughly washed out to avoid developing Seborrheic Dermatitis. Using hypoallergenic or unfragranced products can also assist in reducing the chance of inflammation.

If you are experiencing symptoms of Seborrheic Dermatitis, it is important to speak with a hair loss expert to make sure you get appropriate treatment for your condition, and stimulate hair re-growth. If it is your pet who is experiencing hair loss, their vet is the appropriate port of call.
