My 5yr old malamute has been excessively licking herself the

My 5yr old malamute has been excessively licking herself the last couple days (back end and underneath area the most) and today her poop was literally just a big green hair ball. Green I'm sure because her tummy was upset from all the hair, so she ate grass. But other than that it was all hair and water. What is causing her to do this? I'm worried. I have kept her nicely groomed. There's nothing in the yard she has gotten in to. No new foods either. Could this be serious? Should I watch her for a few days? What can it be? Very worried!!!

Dear Dr. G, how are you? This time I found a bald spot on my

Dear Dr. G, how are you? This time I found a bald spot on my dog's forehead. He had a smaller one since almost three months ago, and I noticed it got larger after I got back from a trip recently. Is this hot spot and what should I do? I only give him Sentinel monthly, and I'm thinkin about getting a K9 Adventix II. Do you think that's a good combination to prevent and kill flea and tick? I'm confused by these meds' description. Some say they kill larvae and eggs, and say prevent from hatching. Would Sentinel and K9 work great for preventing all the problems due to flea and tick(no matter it is killing or preventing those insects)?
