A. Hello, I think your question got cut off, so I'm not quite sure what's going on with your dog. Is she scratching back by her tail and leaving bald spots there? If that's the case the first thing I'd recommend doing is treating her for fleas, since that's the number one spot where they tend to hang out. Sometimes you don't even see them, but they're there. Also dogs that have dealt with flea infestations in the past can become very sensitive - so much so that they become allergic to flea saliva, and the bite of even one flea really sets them off. So I'd recommend using a good flea prevention product - Frontline Plus may be available from your vet.
