Ebony will lick her .. uhh.. "but region" repeatedly ... at all hours of the day/night... What does it mean when a dog licks that area? I was thinking Anal glands might be full, but I released them, at the groomers.. i was thinking worms.. but she was treated when she got spayed. ... .. im out of ideas

Does she look irritated at all? If it seems to really bother her, I'd have the vets check it out.

I was reading that labs are prone to "hot spots", my dogs are left alone for a few hours during the day, when we are working... never kenneled up though, they have free run of the house (upstairs and down).. I didnt know they could have a hot spot in "that" area... hmm... No kisses for her lol. she has lost all her hair around there because of licking... it isnt bleeding, but it does look a little raw...
