Schnauzer keeps licking himself - how can we stop it?
(Mrs D Wilson)
Our 7 year old Schnauzer constantly licked his front leg causing a lump which had to be surgically removed. Once one was removed he then started on his other leg and this lump too has recently been removed.
It sounds to me from reading your article that he suffers from an inhalent allergy as he is constantly nibbling at himself and displays the other patterns of behaviour.
He is still wearing his "cone" about 3 weeks after his op because this is the only way we can stop him hurting himself.
I don't think this is seasonal because this has been going on for about 18 months now.
Please can you help.
