We may have to use a cone if we can't curb it with the other methods. She's not licking tonight, but I had her going all day, she's sacked out hard.

Just realised Rangers physical therapist is also a vet and holistic as well, she already did acupuncture on him t help him relax, we'll see what she thinks about it.

We may have to give the Gold Bond a try too, but having her bandaged up while were at work, it may not stay on very long. I'm also thinking about bring her to work with me and keep her in the shop. I could let her run during breaks, lots of open land and its fenced in too, might help.

Apoolutz Niko used to get them and I would put medicated gold bond powder on them and wrap with a bandage, always heeled pretty quickly, works for hot spots too. Our vet said boredom had nothing to do with it but I totally disagree with her.

K9POPPY We had the same problem as you. Tried everything mentioned with NO success, for months. You can try it all, it might work for you. Did exactly what your vet suggested, for 2 months, it worked . Period. 1 year later, no more problems!

Nigel We thought about the collar too, but I'm hoping to avoid that. The tea tree oil sounds intresting, is it harmful if they do lick it? Zoey doesn't seem to stress too much, but she does jump up and is ready to go at any time, I'm certain with her its boredem, especially during the 6-7 hours DW and I are at work.

wolfstraum try keeping the area sprayed with tea tree oil....yep - boredom and/or stress can caus the behavior...
