Bald Spots

I noticed today Kahn has a bald spot on his left back leg and two balding spots on his right leg. Everything went great after his neauter. I dont know what this could be, the spots dont seem to bother him, and they arent sores, they are just bald. He has gotten full roam of the house again and no longer is having bladder problems at all. Last night he got out of the house for 10 mins I was frantic looking for him when I heard his little bell outside. He came right back to me when he saw me. But I dont think he could have gotten bald spots in 10 mins. Please help, will he go more bald? Is this something I should call the vet about?

It's not a place where he was shaved for blood test or anesthesia, is it?

there are no marks or redness about the spot. its just regular white/peachy colored skin. looks like totally healthy skin, just bald. i called the vet he said monitor it for a week it may grow back on its own.

Mikko has bald spots, like what you have described, too. His fur isn't in the best condition anyway though (maybe because he was feral, I don't know). His vet said that it should fill in with time and a good diet.

We brought Kahn in from outside. But he was about 4 months when we brought him in. He is 11 months and will be 1 in May. His coat use to be in horrible! condition. We fixed up his coat, cleaned it brushed him and etc. Then he started changing colors and was looking wonderful. The bald spots arent getting any bigger and not going away. So I guess only time will tell.
