I have worked for a Veterinarian for over 27 years as an R.V.T.. Please take your baby to his/her Vet for an exam, it sounds like what the vet will call a hot spot. This can be treated with a topical medication and your vet might give her an injection to stop the itch. Good luck.

We have a female hound-husky mix. She is 1 year old and seems to have serious nervous problems! These problems seem to have started shortly after having her spayed when she was 6 months old. I asked the Dr. if there could be any side affects from the surgery and she said no. She began by not listening to direct commands that she had done great before, such as sit and stay.
About 3 months ago she licked her tail and a lot of the hair was gone. We took her to the vet and she said that there was no evidence of mites/fleas etc. It hadn't happened again until a couple of days ago, but this time she has licked most of the hair off her tail, paw and forearm! She has vomited a few times in the past week too. I'm just a mess worried about it. I'm taking her to the vet today. Any advice from anyone would be greatly appreciated, or just someone that understands!

Other problems can be psychogenic grooming due to a need not being met. These cases are quite difficult to pinpoint but, are not impossible. I would suggest keeping a diary of behaviors and changes and presenting them to your vet. It may sound a little freaky but, the more information we have, the more able we are to get to the root of the problem! Good luck! :) (11/15/2008)
I agree with the last person; keep a journal of any changes in her environment and her habits. Good Luck and God Bless! (11/18/2008)
