We are noticing our 13 week old Dobermans' coat seems to be changing.  Like tiny little bald spots, could this be her coast changing or is this cause for concern.  I know our Malinois coat changed when she was a few months. I cant send a pic but it almost looks like little bleach spots.

If they are small, sporadic bald spots on the legs, face, etc... I would have a scraping for mites done. The scraping is pretty inexpensive and could prevent a bigger problem later if the mites go unmanaged. Juneau had demodex when I got him at 15 weeks. A change in diet and some rest cleared it right up. 

Good luck :)

Sorry for not responding I was travling today.  They are just little spots on her back and forehead, like her fur is thinning a little in those spots.

If they are clearly defined spots, not a general thinning, I would get the scraping done.
