As I was about to search the net about the reason of dog's falling hair, I found your post and wonder if you happen to know why. My dog has lots of falling hair. What could be the possible reason for this?

hmm... several reasons may behind it. You need to contact a veterinary physician. Parasites, bugs or, poisonous substances i.e. arsenic may behind this.
