Guest Lygracilux Posted September 26, 2015 Share Posted September 26, 2015 Fusion has a serious licking problem. Ever since we've had him. Because of his digestive issues, we've tried about 6 different foods with him. Each having a different protein source. Though his digestive issues are FINALLY cleared up, and we're on a really good food for him that keeps his poo's good, keeps his energy up, and keeps his coat nice and shiny-he still licks. So I highly doubt it is a food allergy, and its definitely more behavioral. (except with fish based. that actually gives him hot spots and the tummy gurglyies) If he has a tiny cut, he will lick it until it turns into a big infected cut. Literally it can be the smallest cut ever and if he finds it, and can reach it-hes done for. We just got over him having a cut on his inner thigh that he turned into a raw oozing mess. Lots of muzzling, and pants haha. Now since having the muzzle and pants off, hes given himself sores between his toes. (not the first time for toe sores..he loves licking his toes) Which I think is caused by him running and his skin being so thin the friction gives him micro cuts that get itchy cause of dirt or whatever so...he itches them with his tongue...over and over again until they are again, oozing. There really hasnt been a long period of time without him having either the muzzle, pants or socks on. Though I dont mind clothing him, it'd be nice for him to just stop lol. Any ideas what I should do? Id rather not drug him up with anti anxieties. I dont think hes anxious, I think he's just OCD, and I want to break that.
