Default Thinning hair?

Well.. I have noticed over the last few days that on the bridge of Riots nose, the hair is slowly thinning out.

I know that Belgians are prone to skin irritations or allergies, so I am assuming that hes developing one (Another reason why I have decided to switch him over to a better brand of food).
Anyways, hes got a vet appointment tomorrow afternoon to check it out just in case. i dont want it to get any worse because show season is about to start soon and one of the main traits of a Terv is their black mask on their face.. i dont think the judge will like a bald faced Terv.. lol

Any other things it could be??

Is demodex a common problem with your breed?

Not that I'm aware of. I do know that the breed does have a tendancy to have sensative skin or skin allergies.

Hes got a vet appointment tomorrow so that will see what the vet thinks. Hopefully its nothing permanent Poor little Riot!

UPDATE:

Well.. the vet said that there was nothing to be worried about in Riot, its more then likely something in his food that is giving him this "allergic reaction" Hes now switched over to "hills". The brand of food that our vet will only carry. So its call Hills Perscription Diet the Pediatric formula.
