|Husky of the Month|
Congrats Nikita, Archer, and Cheyanne,
our November HOTM Winners!
Thanks to all for this month's entries!
|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.

Kingsley spent a day at doggy day care. He came home with 5 small bug bites near his groin, and I was curious if I should be concerned and take him to the ER vet (all other places are closed).
Here are 2 pictures:
the bites aren't raised or swollen, but there's a small center (bite mark) and they're circled. It's weird.
Anyway, are these flea bites or are they some kind of freaky spider bite that I should rush him to the vet to get help?

Aloe vero will soothe the itchiness and help with scaring. That's normally what I do if one of my dogs gets a flea bite. Just make sure, like with an topical, that he doesn't bother that area for at least 5 mins to allow it to soak in. I have some by Solarcaine that has Lidocaine in it and it really seems to help my Doxie.
