Please help me my 7 months old rotties’ hair turning grey, the grey hair grow all over mostly on his back(neck to tail).
Please tell me what can i do to stop his hair getting grey as he is only 7 months old and it looks so bad.
From the photos it’s difficult to see any grey on your pup, but what I think you may be seeing is the grey undercoat which is showing through his top coat. In this situation you’ll usually notice it mostly around the neck, behind the ears, around the tail and upper back legs.
Rottweilers have either a red/rust or grey undercoat and depending on bloodlines some have a thicker undercoat than others. The undercoat is softer than the top coat and in dogs who have a lot of it often have a top coat that is a bit coarser. It’s not a fault or something to be concerned about, simply a ‘family trait’.
In hot weather when the top coat is thinner, the undercoat may show through more obviously, especially after a heavy molt such as the ones that take place during the Springtime or when a puppy sheds his ‘baby coat’ and the more adult coat comes in.
In the winter time when it’s colder, the topcoat will be thicker and the undercoat should be less noticeable. Unless your pups topcoat is turning grey (and this would usually be happening on the face/head first) then I wouldn’t be too concerned. As your pup grows and matures his coat will go through changes too and by the time he’s an adult this will probably not be noticeable.
Hope this helps, best of luck.
