My male Husky has licked/chewed all the hair off of his testicles. I was wondering if dogs can get jock itch or what the reason he would do this is? He is breeding stock and is fully functional- because he has just produced a litter with my female. The skin looks rather irritated and dry. I was wondering if i should put some cream on them? Does anyone have any suggestions?
Was he not checked for brucellosis prior to using him as a stud? What about the bitch, was she checked?
I agree, he needs to be titered to check for brucellosis and if positive neutered & the bitch spayed as soon as possible. Brucellosis is not something to be taken lightly and can even be transmitted to humans (although reportedly that is rare).

Well, I had this guy to the vet today and she said it is just a "hot spot". I asked if this was strange place for a hot spot and she said no. We have some cooling cream to put on it to make the irritation on the skin go away and she said to e collar him until it looks healed.
