Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Skye has started gnawing at her abdomen and it's starting to look sore. We can't see any obvious signs of fleas or tics or indeed anything that might be causing this. Any advice?

Any changes in food? Koda would chew on his abdomen and legs whenever I had him on a chicken-based food.

We've started feeding Skye on raw minced tripe and beef. Do you think that might be causing it?

Mishka gets this sometimes too. The only thing that stopped it for us was to keep her from jumping in the pool and if she did to quickly rinse her off. It's nearly gone on her now. Perhaps a good bath is in order with a nice shampoo. I'd recommend some, but I don't know if they're available over there.

Recommend away. If the brand isn't available here I can probably order it an get it shipped. Or maybe find a British equivalent.

I use a lot of Earthbaths products. Them and Cloudstar Buddy Wash.

You can also try coconut oil on the area and let that sit on it. I did that with Mishka also and then put a shirt on her so she wouldn't get it everywhere. Washed it off after 15 minutes or so.

I second Earthbath products. I use Earthbath and Bio-Groom products on my pack.

The coconut oil is also great for moisturizing the skin and coat if Skye's abdomen seems dry.

None of my dogs have ever exhibited the behavior that Skye is so I'm at a loss.

I'll send Earthbath an e-mail and see if they'll ship to the UK, or if not, can they tell me the ingredients so I can find a local equivalent.

lol Earthbath is awesome! i use mango on kale-fluff. as for the gnawing, hmmm he may not have fleas, but one bite from anything may be bothering him. some dogs are more sensitive to insect saliva than others.

Does the dog have any allergies? It may be allergies or something.
