There are several reasons a dog can lose hair, it could be topical like mange or fleas, or systemic like cushings. The best solution is to take the dog to a vet and let them check the dog for topical issues and do preliminary blood work to make sure it is not something more significant.

If only the darker hair is falling out, your beagle may have black hair follicular dysplasia, which is common in the breed. Staph infection and other conditions can also cause hair loss. To rule out anything serious and for the best possible treatment, please see your vet.

You should take your dog to the vet as soon as possible as it may have mange. It is caused by parasitic mites and can make your dog very sick and very uncomfortable. A vet will be able to prescribe medicine to relieve the itching and get rid of the mites.

Dogs like humans can experience baldness with no explanation or cure as to why. If your beagle does not have a rash in the baldness areas, you may want to try changing his or her diet to see if that helps. Your vet may also be able to provide you with some vitamins that may help.
