if it has a kinda nasty smell to it, your dog licks it a lot, and is pinkish and fleshy (raw) looking, it could be ringworm (usually infected from squirrels, fecal matter, etc). which would suck; my dog had it a few years ago. the only thing you can do in that case is to put the dog in one of those huge elizabethan collars (big plastic lampshade kinda things) and put ointment on it like 4 times a day. talk to your vet on that one (prescription ointment). if the bald spot is just red and itchy, and drier looking (not wet, as above), its probably just a minor skin infection. cant do anything about it, just try to stop the dog from licking it (again, might need one of those elizabethan collars). labs and golden retrievers are especially prone to these ones.

he has a bald spot because he has tryed to have sex with a foreign koala and this "koala" actually has acid seamen. don't worry this bald spot can only lead to your dogs death.

It's called demodex.  It is a mange that pups under a year get.  You have to go to the vet to get medicine to prevent more bald spots.  It isn't contagious to humans or other dogs.  The vet will do a skin scrape and look at it under a microscope.  Good luck

WtF are you talking about loser... Nothing else to do but put up this ridiculous statement, that you think is funny. Hardly, you should really look into getting some sored of a life where you don't have to watch koala sex all day the experimenting what the seamen does to you and your dogs.  Good Luck with everything else.

My dog has a almost the exact same problem. I found some "bile " vomit and now 1 week later I noticed the bald spot( just noticed last night!). It is very symetrical, round and by her hind legs as well.She also has very dry scaly skin. The area is pink and soft like a baby's bottom and does not appear to be irritated at all. I dont know what this is but I am scheduling a visit to the vet on Sat. 1/7/05. Hopefully I will get answers then.
