    It's very likely that this is a nutritionally based problem. What breeds does your aunt's dog appear to be predominantly, how old is the dog, and what does it eat?

    The food is the best candidate for blame. You might want to check out some of the threads in the Dog Food forum, and Mordy's advice is always good.
