Breeds in the project
”Psedopelade” is an immune mediated skin disease affecting adult dogs of the breed Norwegian puffin dogs.
The immune attack is directed towards the hair follicles middle part (isthmus) resulting in hairless patches with mildly dry, scaling skin. Dogs with pseudopelade can have varying degree of itching. The loss of hair can progress to several areas or larger areas. Pseudopelade can be treated with medication aimed at controlling the inflammatory attack and initiating hair growth in hair follicles.
