My little JRT is itchy like crazy! Yesterday he was looking at me funny and kicking his back leg. I went to check him out, and he had chewed a large raw spot around his tail, a big spot on his bottom, and one of his toes. The hair was gone and it was oozy and bloody. I gave him some benadryl and an oatmeal bath, and curled up with him until he fell asleep. I got him into the vet today, and she said it looked like he went after his tail like corn on the cob! She combed him for fleas, and didn't find any or any flea dirt. (duh...just washed him less than 24 hours before) She gave him prednisone and had us treat both dogs and the cat with Advantage. If it doesn't go away, she said to go back. Could be yet ANOTHER food allergy! Anyways - for those of you with itchy, allergic dogs, how do you treat their wounds? We have a BAD wasp problem. Do you think that a wasp would be able to get through a rough terrier coat?
