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.

Bald spot on chest + Umbilical Hernia? Empty

My husky Shiro has been with us for 4 months now. He's thrown off most of his undercoat and revealed his skinny true self to us.

At the same time we find he's been showing a lot of skin on his chest. He's almost bald there now!. This baldness started developing when he started wearing his new harness which he got about the time he started to throw his fur around. During this period he ate little (next to nothing). The harness is a ruff wear webmaster and is padded. Picture of the harness is also included below. The patch at first was similar to the shape of the padded strap of the harness but by now more roundish.

He's been having similar problems with a regular collar, where it would create a bald spot, we bought the harness partly to combat this bald spot (which has been slowly regrowing fur in absence of a collar)

Shiro is 13months. On a diet of raw + farm food kibble and as of today supplements.

Bald spot on chest + Umbilical Hernia? BK



another thing we recently discovered on him is this - notice the lump in the center of the picture. It is a little flashy "sack" or bump and my guess is umbilical hernia. any ideas?

Kody has an umbilical hernia. You really can't see it since it's totally covered in fur, but you can feel it. Vet said that it was nothing to worry about.
