Recently my 10 mos old bitch just started really chewing on herself where it's causing scabs and little bald spots. Not good since we have a show this weekend but luckily it hasn't gotten so bad that you can really notice it. anyways, I'm not sure what to do about it. Her diet has not changed. She doesn't have any fleas. I keep trying to spray cool spot on her but it only works for a couple of minutes. She is going through a mild false pregnancy right now so I am suspicious of hormones causing this. Does anyone have any advice as to what to do for this? Thanks!

I have a gentamicin (sp) spray that I've used before but of course just ran out. I will drop by the vets and get more. I have gold bond powder for anti itch and I'll try that. I am probably going to make a vet visit for monday since I can't the rest of this week due to working alot. For now I'm trying to distract her by stuffing her kong with her favorite treat. She does have alot of white on her so I don't think the blue powder treatment would be such a good idea. Has anyone used oxydex shampoo? I was just told about it but didn't know if it would help with this problem. I am trying to avoid shaving. I don't think it is to that point yet. Luckily you can barely see the bare spots for the show. I am going to try not to brush out that area of her body to avoid irritation and keeping the hair there. I'll keep you posted.
