It was not there saturday when i fed him there is no dired blood or anything just looks like he has been shaved down to skin in that part our vet is not open until 9 am in morning does anyone have any suggestions???:usa:

Um... Why does it sound like the only time you see this dog is when you feed him?

btw, we can't really diagnose skin things over the internet. It's safer for your dog to head to a vet.
