OK Debby, here’s one up for grabs….already have been to the vet twice this week…My tiny shih tzu was nicked on the foot by the groomer months ago….(I haven’t been there since) Of course, he licked his foot and then it turned into a lick granuloma…an ulcer….finally it healed…Then a week ago, he started licking again. We went away for two days. I came back and took him to the vet. Antibiotics and an e collar and topical antibiotic. He is a contortionist and got to his leg even tho the collar fit correctly…..So the sore looks horrible. I put another soft collar inside the e collar…and a sock on his foot…So it will be two weeks, I think, in this situation…I will feed him just raw food, I think,. to help the skin issues. I am frustrated. He is a compulsive licker (looking back)….calming herbs….fish oil will probably help his skin..Anybody have experience with this imbalance?
