My Aussie Is Losing Hair In Clumps; Should I Be Concerned?


I've noticed over the last couple of weeks that Dolly is shedding in clumps — not the normal shedding she has throughout the year. The fur on her hind quarters is sticking straight out and seems thinner than usual (though still there). If it were spring or summer I would think it normal, but heading into the fall it seems odd.

Not sure if something is wrong or if there's nothing to worry about. Separately, we are doing major renovations on our house, and I'm wondering if any of this could be stress related?

My 6-year-old Aussie has a big shed twice a year. The biggest is in the spring, but she then has a smaller, but still significant, shed in the fall.
