  3. Dealing with lick sores

    Ben J. Character, DVM

    The following is a question that might be asked about any dog breed or age. Thought not extremely common, the problem is seen with enough frequency to warrant discussion, especially because it is highly frustrating. Q: My 5-month-old yellow lab will chew all of the hair off of her [lower] forearm joint. I have talked with the vet and she said that it might be boredom. I don't see how it is since she is in a crate with all of her toys; I take her out for 15 min. every two hours and then for an hour at lunch. Do you have any suggestions on how to get her to stop chewing her hair off?
