    After this hot weather I noticed that Hannah has red patches between her back legs where she doesnt have alot of fur. Cold it be heat related??
    I know she has sensitive skin coz I had to get a fleece lined collar for her as any metal/plastic touching her skin caused it to get red and sore.
    What is best for this if hot weather is the problem?? (sadly moving to Alaska is out of the question!:():rolleyes:

    Sounds like sunburn. I noticed my dog burnt his balls a bit as they are pink and havent grown enough hair on them yet. I'm going to put sun cream on them next time.
