>Laura----------Yes, yes, yes. I experienced it, and it was bad. At some
points, I felt like putting the pup down due to the discomfort it was
feeling. Fortunately, it finally does go away when the immune system kicks
in. Lots of TLC, and with ours, I separated it from the other pup (there
were only 2), because the other pup wanted to play, and this was too
uncomfortable for the afflicted pup. The pup is doing great now, and only
has a small area right by the nose where the hair did not grow back. Please
e-mail me privately for more info. It is not an easy thing to go through,
for pup or owner. Take care------------------Marna.
