Our 14 year old beagle keeps getting "hot spots."
She chews herself raw.
Along with all the other possible interventions we finally have resorted to using a cone.
She looks pretty pathetic:
I know it sounds cruel but I can't stop laughing every time I look at her.
If she could talk I'm sure she would be saying, "what the F--K are you doing to me? What's up with the lampshade for Pete's sake!"
