Although many factors can cause hair loss in dogs but in case of your dog, loss of hair can be due to stress during pregnancy, whelping and nursing period and hormonal changes before and after delivery of puppies. Hormones changes during heat, lactation and immediately after delivery can cause hair loss in dogs.

Beside hormonal changes, your dog should be also checked for other causes that can be
  1. Allergies
  2. Fleas
  3. Lice
  4. Pyoderma
  5. Scabies
  6. Ringworm
  7. Skin diseases
  8. Endocrine disorders
So, it will be better to discus your dog's problem with your local vet.
