This is not necessarily abnormal. If she's not going bald, it may be quite normal. Make sure that she has absolutely no fleas, that she is dewormed, eating the best diet you can afford and that she is generally in good health. Brush her regularly. You can also add omega-3 fatty acids to her diet to help boost the skin health. The regular daily brushing will also help.
