    @ddnene, Finn does have some areas where I've rubbed his hair and some fur comes out. He gets into everything; like when he pees, he has to find the biggest bush and literally climbs into it, then kicks all this dirt all over the place. I wonder if the dirt combined with the rubbing of the varsity ball, if that's all contributing to his skin.

    I feel like the mom that doesn't keep her kid clean!
    I usually just wipe him down with water and baby wipes after he plays, plus I've been putting a tee shirt on him but he still gets so filthy so now I'm thinking i need to bathe him more often.

    Oh, and at tomorrow's visit I'm going to ask the vet about Finn's anxiety and see what she thinks of any pharmacologics that might help. Might as well get that discussion opened up too...

    Ugh… maybe his anxiety issues are contributing to the hair loss?!! I know it happens w/people… I'm so sorry, and you are a GREAT MOM Seriously we can't keep on top of every little thing that happens, and lets face it when something happens it's usually a mother load of issues!!! And you don't want to restrict him from enjoying the outdoors, this is a tough situation… I hope the vet has some answers for you tomorrow!!!

    It is allergy season and I bet it's all related to that. I would do the same with our kids and get them in to see the vet and talk with them. I hope everything works itself out, poor little Paddington Bear.

I don't think he has a UTI after all b/c he doesn't have any other sx's like excessive thirst or frequent urination during the day; it was only those nights where he pee'd in bed but maybe that was a stress-related issue. He didn't pee in bed last night but i watched him like a hawk! He also has a slight ear infxn so i'm giving him ointment for that. Oh, and she doesn't think he needs any psychotropic meds (yet) but did refer me to a trainer she knows. So....I'm just now sharing some waffle fries from Chik Fil La with the two of them, and the little squirt seems to be doing okay!

    Hopefully it was just a temporary stress thing, because that is a lot of stuff to happen all at once! Glad that you got Finn to the vet and nothing was too serious. What lucky boys to get waffle fries!

    Our little guy gets hot spots like crazy, and our vet gives him Cephalexin (antiobiotic), and we use a spray called Vetericyn VF which works miracles on his spots! Usually clears them up within a couple of days.
