My Rat Terrier And Chihuahua mix is around 3 years old and has always had some lose of hair on her ears but now all the hair is coming off her head and some on her stomach and back legs. Her skin is not flaky or scaly but her body always seems very warm even though she is always cold. I have 2 other small dogs in the house and they don't seem to have this problem. She has always eten the same food and likes it. What could be the problem?
