This female spayed Boxer is presented because of bilateral hairless areas in the flank region which are slowly progressing (pictures 1 and 2). (...)

The thyroid profile is normal, the skin scrapings are negative and the histopathological diagnosis is „cyclic recurrent flank alopecia” (CRFA).
Which of the following concerning this disease is not true?
a) This disease is common in Airedale terriers and Boxers but also seen in a number of other breeds
b) The characteristic signs are bilateral symmetric, non pruritic hair loss in the flank region. The affected areas are often irregularily or bizarre shaped, and some breeds tend to “saddle like” extensions (e.g. German Shorthaired Pointer)
c) This is just a cosmetic problem mostly causing more problems for the owners than the affected dogs
d) In dogs that start loosing hair in October the oral application of retinoids is a successful prevention when given from September to March
