Heidi’s CDA

Color Dilution Alopecia.

So my dachshund Hedi is a blue dapple dachshund who was born Aug 8, 2020. She weighs 12 lbs.

I noticed about 4 weeks ago that she had a bald sot on the back of her head and was losing hair on her back at the top back. I took her to the vet, who performed a skin scaping to detect mites and then did blood work to look at her thyroid. Blood work came back normal and she had so mites. The vet suggested 3 mg of Melatonin A it caN help.

That led me to do some research. The research I found was to do 3 mg melatonin, 1 tab apple cider vingear, two capsules Vitamin A and 1 omegas (3-6-9). So I started her on June 12. Here are the photos:

Here is the regimine I’m following created for a silver lab. Gunner’s regimine.

My breeder, Kaibab Dachshunds, also suggested melatonin and Omegas. She said her sister-in-law had a dachshund with CDA, gave her the melatonin and Omegas and all the hair grew back.

Here are Jun 26th photos:


And today Tail doesn’t look too good, but back looks really good:



If you notice, the hair is lighter.
