I was just playing with Sydney on the couch and she was laying upside down and I noticed something red under her lower jaw. When i looked more closley i notice there was a patch of hair the size of a quarter missing and it was red. Like maybe from scratching? Anyways it doesnt seem to bother her, she let me touch it with no objection at all. Is this something i should take her to the Vet for or do you guys think its just from scratching or maybe playing with my other girls? Anything I could put on it? Neosporin? Thanks :)
sydney there could be a thousand reasons why she has a bare patch of fur on her chin. it could range from simply rubbing it off while playing to the start of mange. it is virtually impossible to tell without seeing it. anything would be a guess. you could put neosporin on it. it can't hurt her but it may not help at all either depending on what it is. have the vet check it.
I was at the vet's the other day and one of the dogs there had the same problem as yours. I was kind of ease dropping and listening to what the vet siad about it. And if I remember correctly he seemed to think it was like a type rash the dog had picked up some where possible on it's feet while it was outside then chewed at it and got it on it's chin. He said that dogs that dig a lot tend to get rtashes like this. He didn't seen to think it was anything serious though I think he just gave the owner some allergy type medicines or something. I don't know if this has anything to do with what your dog has or not but the chin thing just reminded me of that dog. If it keeps spreading I would take her to the vet, I would also look to see if she is chewing at her paws or any other part of her body she might need some meds to clear it up.
