This weeks mischief goes to Mr. Phod. On Friday we noticed he was obsessively licking the inside of his right back leg. He licked it so much it was red and he was creating a hot spot. We can't be sure the area wasn't irritated in the bush, but we didn't see any cut or scrap.
I knew we had some dog creams that may help relieve the discomfort and get him to stop licking. Cream one had gone mouldy. It was super gross! Cream 2 was fine (fortunately). While he didn't like me putting it on, it seemed to help.
Saturday it looked better and he was licking less. We put a warm compress on it to help. Yesterday, the bright red spot was completely gone, although Man did catch him licking it and told him no licking.
Phod, while co-operative, doesn't enjoy any type of medical treatment. If he thinks it is coming, he just slowly walks away. When you tell him to stop and he has to, he is unhappy, but doesn't resist.
All of this has Phod feeling pretty sorry for himself. This picture was taken after I went to check the spot. Let's hope it is gone for good!
