In August Kiki a poddle/ cocker spanial 13 lbs who (2 years old December) suddenly she lost 5 lbs, her eyes started watering a few days later she had scrapped the hair and skin off her face to the point where it was raw. The vet had no idea what was wrong and was no help with her loosing so much weight. The vet offered spray to stop the itching (if that what it was) but he did not know. The spray did not help nothing help other then (maybe) I started applying antibiotic cream and it help but it took a long time. Guess what it is back though she is not loosing weight. I have also the father and two brothers none of those dogs developed this problem, nor does the other breed dog that I have or the mother. There are 6 in total. What the heck is wrong with her face. Not only that now she will not allow me to put my face near her back as if she is scared and pushes me away this has only happened in the past few weeks. Years ago Jake the father had something similar but different on his hip and he also has this problem of not allowing to get close to his back. What the heck is going on? I do think that they want to keep the distance from them because they have developed a fear that you may hurt them more because of this break out. The break out finally goes away but the fear of being touched does not.

What could this raw hairless spots be?

how do dogs act after the vac does it make them feel or act sick?

So I rescued a 9 month old white german shep. We are seeing a private trainer to deal with her major self esteem issues and attachment issues. However, she is scared to try the doggy door ive tried everything, i got her to take treats off the ledge of the door but thats it. She'd rather stay outside alone then attempt to come in when I am sitting right there. (which for her is HUGE) any advice?

We have a chi that we adopted. He is about 8+ years old and weighs about 5 pounds now.  We would not take anyting for him, so we don't want him in pain or having a problem. I hope someone can tell me something.

I notice it at night more than in the daytime. He sleeps with u and he will lick the sheets until they are wet. I don't know why, but I think it has something to do with swalowing.  He constantly working his mouth as though he is trying to get something up.  Sometimes he will get gaged and cough as though there is something he is trying to get up.  I don't like to see him hurt, because I think he has had that in the past. I want him to be happy and enjoy life.  Please, if you have an answer, please let me hear from you.  Mary

I just bought this new hair grooming thing called the furminator.  I would never have bought it, but the people at the vet's office showed me how well it worked.  I would never of bought it unless I saw how much hair it removed. 

I did some research, and apparently its just a tool used to strip the dog's under coat.  Anyway, my question is if stripping your dogs undercoat is a bad thing?

I am hoping I can get some advice for a 15 month old Bischon who yelps once in pain each morning after he has been awake for an hour or two.  Once he yelps, (right out of nowhere and mostly when completely inactive), he gets low to the ground and goes under the couch.  He has no fever, is drinking and eating, sleeping normal and plays normal.  He is noticeably filling out in size lately and I wonder if growing pains can be like this?  He has been at the vet, and is taking Metacam once a dayfor the past 3 days, and in the hours right after medication, seems completely normal.  I am resting him somewhat in case it is a muscle pull as he plays each day with our Standard Poodle and they can be quite rough.  I have stopped him from taking stairs in the resting time but he is going for walks on leash.  

We cannot afford to run him to the vet each day as we are unemployed right now, but I have no idea what might be going on.  This was a puppy bought for me when our daughter left for the armed services and is very special to me.  
Any advice would be helpful.
Thank You for reading,
