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.

So Nova had a patch on the back of his right knee this weekend that had hair loss and was pussing a bit, so i shaved it and put Vetricyn on it after i cleaned it until i can take him to the vet tomorrow. But we've noticed some spots on the front elbows and on the back side of the other knee, although none of these have any problem like the back right knee i'm taking him to the vet for. Now, obviously im going to talk to the vet about it tomorrow, but i was just wondering if any of you have experienced this at all, or if any of you have an idea what it might be? The hair is not matted and hes not biting or chewing any of them so, not really sure what it is.

Edit: took these.

Maya had some hair loss on her elbows from laying on hard surfaces too much. Other then that i wouldn't know what it might be.

yeah he does love to lay on the kitchen and entryway floor, both are hard, im guessing because its cooler to him. Might have to curb the habit if it becomes more of a problem i guess. Depends on how severe it becomes and whatnot. I'll keep an eye on it. The problem spot that i shaved is to my guess, either some kind of infection due to him getting scratched that we didnt catch in time or some kind of allergy. Originally we thought it might be ringworm, but im kindy iffy on that one, considering it wasnt circular untill i shaved it, and the hair is growing back, but it still pusses a bit, im really clueless on the other one.
