Is this a pup on formula? It can be from overfeeding or too much bile.

Re: bald spots

That doesn't look like any molt I've even seen. Is that a ring of white hair? I've only seen white hair some in with an injury. One area looks almost raw. I'd have a vet check him if I was you. I'll ask the ER team to take a look and post.

Re: UK Breeders,

We have had members in the UK, but I don't remember how they got their flyer. I would think that bringing one into the UK by yourself would be a problem. Don't animals have to be in isolation when brought in? There are European flyers, but I don't know if they are in the pet trade business.
