Q. I noticed that my 4 year old dog lost some hair around her eye -- thought it may be due to rough play with the cat who paws at her face. Allergy?

A. If it is only one eye affected may be due to a trauma/rough play. But there are still other causes such as mange and fungal infection to consider.
If both eyes are affected I would consider a more generalized disease such as allergy, as you suggested.
I would monitor it for the moment and see if it will spread or resolve in the next week.
