Usually, there's a reason though? Allergy or critters, often fleas?
It sounds serious if the dog is already removing fur?!?
I need to take my dog to the vet soon! She's always biting herself and licking, especially her paws. Sometimes, she's scratching but it's mostly licking and biting.
I thought it might be a food alergy but no longer think that. I switched from prepared raw chicken to salmon. No real change. I feel bad that it went on this long but I don't have a lot of money at the moment. I owe some $$ for dental work a little while ago.
I was hoping I could figure it out on my own but it's too difficult. Too many factors. I suspect it's either fleas or an allergy - environmental, though.
I sure hope the vet can figure it out. She still rubs her eyes/ears and the vet thought it was due to dental issues but she still does it. I want an accurate and specific diagnosis this time.
OP, don't wait. Take your dog to the vet.
I didn't even think of the pathology part. It better not become a habit. I'm really worried now.
