The dog is chewing a patch on her butt. The fur is gone and it's just raw skin. It looks like it hurts a lot, and like she can't leave it alone. It's growing.
I'll take her to the vet tomorrow. When I phoned, the assistant made an appointment right away and said, "Oh yes. A hot spot." In a cheerful voice. So I don't think it's serious but I bet it's expensive. Good thing we love her (the dog, not the assistant).
Question: Am I anxious bout the dog chewing her butt, or is the dog chewing her butt because she's anxious?
