Welcome! My name isXXXXX am a UC Davis graduate, and currently, a Medical Director of a veterinary hospital.
I am sorry to hear about this concern.
Interesting question. I ironically have a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
, and as a result of allergies licks a lot. He gets intermittent hacking from hairs swallowed as well.
What to do?
Professional grooming. Hate to say it, but sometimes, trimming down the coat substantially can help a lot.
If Kaiha is also licking
herself a lot, especially of the feet, then she may also suffer from a primary environmental or food allergy. Therefore, a good candidate to at least try a antihistamine. Let me know if she does lick herself or feet a lot.
I have seen a recommendation in the past about using a little petroleum jelly, but I like your honey idea better.
Also, giving a bit of canned food
can work well.
Please let me know if there is anything I did not cover for you. I hope that information has been helpful.
