What Triggers or Causes Black Skin Disease or Alopecia X in My Dog?

What Causes Black Skin Disease

The exact cause of Alopecia X is not fully known, but hormonal imbalances, specifically related to sex hormones and the adrenal glands, are believed to play a role. The condition is often seen in dogs that have been neutered or spayed, which is thought to perhaps lead to hormonal disruptions. 

Male dogs seem to be more prone than females. It is also thought to be linked to allergies, obesity and genetic factors. For this reason, if your dog suffers from Alopecia X, they should not really be bred from, as they are likely to have offspring which will also suffer from the disease.
