ALOPECIA X - SURVEY
(sometimes called BSD or black skin disease)

Alopecia X, sometimes called BSD (black skin disease) is a ‘hairloss’ condition which has been known to affect several of the Nordic breeds, including the Pomeranian. There are many theories and much confusion surrounding this condition. The Pomeranian Club of Canada is taking a leading role in collecting important data to aid in understanding this disease. It is important that we answer one set of survey questions for each purebred pomeranian dog we own, living or deceased. All purebred Pomeranians whether pets or show/breeding dogs should be entered into the survey. Your participation is appreciated and important to the cause. Please click the link below and help us help the dogs.

The Science of Alopecia X: Shedding the Myths

 Dr. Paul Eckford, PhD (Biochemistry) B.Sc. (Biochemistry)

TinyBear Pomeranians

 

 

There is no more divisive issue in the Pomeranian community than the unexplained loss of coat in the young Pomeranian.  The internet is replete with ‘experts’ who have all of the answers to where it comes from, who is causing it, how it is passed, how to identify it months or even years before it becomes apparent and, even how to cure it.

 

Here many of the myths and much of the misinformation will be challenged, and the scientifically sound facts on the disease will be highlighted.  In particular the article focuses on the future and how scientists are working to identify the cause of the disease, and how to identify it by a genetic test which will allow breeders to screen their dogs and avoid producing Pomeranians that lose their coats.  This article discusses how we can come together as a community to stop the loss of coats in OUR breed, if we truly want to.  Only the support of the Pomeranian community will bring about a real solution to the Alopecia X phenomenon.

Did you know . . .
that Beatrix Potter, who wrote and illustrated the famous and much loved "Peter Rabbit" books, also wrote a story about a black Pomeranian, Duchess. In "The Pie and The Patty Pan", the little Pomeranian is invited over to her cat-friend's house for tea. Feeling certain her friend will be serving mouse pie, Duchess goes to considerable lengths and gets herself in quite a pickle to avoid having to eat mouse while at the same time trying not to offend her friend. "The Pie and The Patty Pan" is Number 17 in the Beatrix Potter book series. There were also two Beswick figurines of Duchess issued about 25 years ago that are quite rare — the one with the little black Pomeranian holding the flowers is worth several hundred dollars!
