ok so i have two pups germansheperd/lab/doberman and i heard that some dobermans have this condition where they lick their paws so much that it causes the skin to cut. Like they lick it so much that they kinda lick their skin off too. one of our neighbors dobermans has that condition and her two front paws have like a round circle on each of liek raw skin like she scraped it but its really from her licking it. since our dogs are part doberman can that condition be passed to them aswell? Cause Blu, my bfs dog is starting to do that or something like it. His front legs skin are starting to look scraped and raw where he always licks. im thinking its liek something in the head..maybe hes bored? i dont know if any of you have even heard of the condition i described, i never heard of it either unitl i asked my neighbor what was wrong with Sashas leg... just need some advice! -KELLY thank you.
Oh wow, i didnt know dobermans had that...its kind of weird! Since your pups are part dobie I wouldn't doubt that is why Blu licks his paws so much. Poor guy! I dont know much about it, but my guess would be put neosporine on it and then maybe some bitter apple? Or socks? lol. Good luck, i hope I helped some =-) **Kris, Abby, Ace, & Summer Ace: http://www.dogster.com/?41494 Abby: http://www.dogster.com/?50370 Summer: http://www.dogster.com/?70413
