    One of my dog consistantly licks (as though she's cleaning) my other dog. They are both 6 yrs old. and both corgis. Female corgi is the only one that does it though.

  • I have a 4yr old chow/collie mix. For the past week she has been itching continuously through the night only to stop suddenly and fall asleep. She itches her neck, face, and lower abdomen and gnaws at her back legs down to her paws. She does not do this very often during the day. We feed her blue diamond limited ingredient food (the salmon and potatoe mix).She does not get table scraps. She is only bathed maybe once a month or longer or if extrememly muddy, with a sensitive dog shampoo. She drinks plenty of water. She is not losing any hair or bleeding. She takes trifexis monthly, so I do not think it is fleas, and have not seen any evidence of fleas either. I do not want her to be uncomfortable, and do not want to be kept awake. We live in Cincinnati, which is a terrible place for someone with allergies. I was considering .5mg of benadryl (she is 35 lbs), but would prefer a natural route, if possible. Any Ideas of what could be causing this? What to do?

    My kitten (about 9 months) has an open wound on his paw (the top part, not the pad). It's very clean, and doesn't look like it was cut. Could this be an abscess? It's about two inches long! and is completely exposed for about a 1/4-inch. He licks it frequently, but otherwise seems to be fine. His attitude is normal, he plays with our other cat, and he has a good appetite. He doesn't seem to be in any pain, and doesn't even limp. I know he needs antibiotics, but is this serious? I'm planning to go to Emergency vet after work at 5.
