I means a trip to the vet to me. A number of things can do that (hormone levels, mites, etc...).

Yeah...get the dog in quick. Make sure the vet checks for mites. My Golden Retriever has had a couple battles with mites...it can be tough on a dog...

My chocolate has lost her hair on her hips with both litters of puppies we had the first litter we brought her in and the vet said it was from stress after doing all the tests and this litter it happened again so on the 6 week check up on friday he looked at her again and said stress again.

Do you leave the dog alone in the house or kennel? It could just be separation anxiety. They lick a single spot raw, usually a leg, rarely larger than 2 inches across.

If it is draining at all then search the topic Hot Spots in FM (not on web that'll only scare you) and apply an antibiotic like Triplebac but Bactine is easier to spray without touching the spot.

Let us know what your vet says.

My chocolate did that. The vet said it was hot spots from rubbing or itchich. I agree with leaddog on using both of those products. should get better shortly

I was guessing hot spots also. My choc also gets crazy allergies in the spring. We think it is the grass. I brush him with a ferminator twice a week. spring time for us is fish oil pills, benidryl ointment and an allergy pill after a month every spring he is better.

    • It's a female Bigfoot,  silly.
    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
