Guest zombrie Posted March 1, 2012 Share Posted March 1, 2012 Not sure if this is the right spot or if anyone can actually help... Minerva has been here for over a month now. I have discovered that she is not only a licker, but an obsessive licker. She is always licking. Her bum, legs, paws, me, anything for a seemingly endless amount of time. I get fed up with her licking and actually have to pull her head away from whatever she is licking. The only way for me to break her concentration on it is to give her a bully stick. But today I discovered that she is licking to the point where she is giving herself sores. She has had happy tail since day 2 and had an infection and now her tail is balding (she is facing amputation if there is no improvement by the end of her round of antibiotics). Could it be she is agitated about her tail and is just licking anything to feel better? Is it boredom? Is it just her? I don't know what to do about this one. I feel awful, I have to muzzle her when I'm not right there watching her so she doesn't do more damage to herself! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
