Coat Is Turning White On Head And Around The Eyes Of My 3 1/2 Year Old Miniature Aussie

Coat is turning white on head and around the eyes of my 3 1/2 year old Miniature Aussie. Does anyone know why this is happening? He is otherwise a very healthy, active, smart... Yes, very special family member.

I am sure there are a good number of breeders on this site who might be able to answer your question. I am curious also. Is your Aussie a blue merle, black tri ... etc?

Turning White

Marshall, my 3 & 1/2 year old Miniature Aussie is a Blue Merle. I have been researching this and found a few articles that deal with this - some suggest it's a condition known as Vitiligo. I have even read of a few Aussies (otherwise healthy) who have turned completely white at around the same age after a molting. Marshall's face and head coat is turning white by the day. He is also presenting with some white splashes on his back. I am looking for a specialist. Any input/experiences would be helpful. Thanks

I have a 4 yr old blk tri whose face has been turning white. Around eyes, and ears. Did you find an answer?
