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.

I came home to this yesterday......

Dakota has a hot spot....... Imag0110


We have been applying hydrocortizone cream to the area and it's keeping him from picking at it. I think I need to give him some benadryl, I'm just not sure of the dosage. If anyone has any other tips I'd welcome them, I was trying to avoid a vet visit, but I have made him an appointment for Friday. I was hoping to get it under control before then.

If you can, shave or trim the area with scissors. The matted hair keeps in the moisture. Hope he gets healed up soon! Kale had one on his cheek (face Razz ) when he was 7-8 months. It was a nightmare. Had to take him on walks with a cone on his head haha

TO keep it from gettign gooey and oozy, use ACV - it will dry it out and its antifungal, antibacterial and antiviral

Thanks everyone! Will definitely look into these tomorrow. I'm going to see if the benadryl helps in the morning and go from there.
