Hello, I was wondering if any of you would kind kind enough to diagnose the problem i have with my alsatian. The picture I have attached does not show the full extent of the problem, and it is worse than it looks - unfortunately it is very hard to get a picture of the affected area. He also has a smaller variant of this under his mouth, which has now healed with 'hot spot' soothing spray. The affected area is extremely dark red in the middle and then fades slightly, I would say the area is about 6 inchs by 4 inches, and is on both sides. Please take a minute to look at the picture and tell me what you think. http://www.jezza.f2s.com/ricky.JPG Thankyou.
