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.

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
