  1. Hi all! We have had our greyhound for almost two months now and things are going great! We took her to the vet and the only issue we found was that she does have hookworms and we are on medication for that and she still has an occasional accident but way less than when we first got her. One thing we noticed is that her skin is looking pink and she seems to lick it a lot. Normally she has tiny little nicks on her leg/feet and she licks those occasionally but this is different as it is her whole foot or her leg and her skin looks pink. Any ideas? Or am I just overthinking?
  2. Hi All! I adopted my greyhound, Bubba, in Dec 2016. Since around October 2017, he has been excessively licking his bottom when I'm not watching him or at work. I took him to a few different vets and heard everything from possible growth to just sore from licking. They expressed his anal glands and said they needed to be expressed at the time but I am growing tired of these large vet bills. He is now on Hill's prescription I/D digestive care food, a dollop of canned pumpkin and I give him pumpkin ginger chews as treats now instead of milkbones. His poop is fine and he has a normal appetite, som
  3. Stu came to us with a quarter sized spot on his front leg, about half way up where he skinned it on a kennel door and took out a small chunk. The wound is clean and doesn't bleed or ooze, but Stu wants to lick it for forever. I've been putting a small gauze pad with vet wrap around his leg, but he licks so much that the bandage eventually slides down enough for him to get at it. I correct him whenever I catch him licking, but within a few moments he goes back to it. Any idea how I can keep it covered so that it can heal without him licking? I don't want to wrap his whole leg in vet wrap fo
  4. So, Billy's acting strange. It's hot outside, but it's been hot, so nothing different. I swear, he seems... depressed? I guess the reason I say this is a couple things, and they may seem ridiculous, but they're totally out of character for him. First, he doesn't want to rooooo with me. He ALWAYS wants to roo, and we go on forever. I barely got a short one out of him this morning. Second, he's been laying around all day. He hasn't barked to go out at all. Plus, he's laying on the floor, instead of on the sofa. Very strange. Third, he's doing a LOT of "boy part" licking. Like, I have to
  5. Lately, Aston has been paying more attention than usual to his butt -- the past few weeks. At first, it looked like he was licking along the same path that he uses when he washes himself after a potty walk. However, he kept up with the frequency for some days, so I took him to the vet a week and a half ago. The vet expressed his anal glands, but they were fine; otherwise, she said that his flea meds might not be effective anymore (Advantix II). She said that rather than switching to a new med right away, I should use up the rest of what I have on hand, but give it more frequently than 1x/m
  6. My male grey, Elliott, has been licking his bum non-stop (mostly in the mornings, but at other times off and onn) for the last week or so. He was at the vet's a couple of weeks ago to have a corn removed, and when he was there, we had his anal glands expressed. His poos look normal and he doesn't have fleas. He's not just licking his anus, rather all around his rear end. He usually licks the most in the morning before his first walk. He refuses to go out in our yard with our girl after breakfast to take care of business, and will wait until he gets a walk at around 9:30 AM. He would always
  7. Doug started chewing and licking a focused area of his mid-tail two days ago, and it quickly started looking red, raw, and sore. I tried wrapping it in a strip of fabric yesterday, but he consistently managed to push the fabric off and get back to nibbling on the area. Today, when taking a closer look, he yelped when I pressed gently on it. (Poor dude!) I cleaned the spot with non-sting alcohol wipes, smeared it with antibacterial gel, and wrapped it in gauze and tape. I'm also trying my best to catch him when he starts investigating the area. Anything else I should do? Is there a point when I
