Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question. It appears that this allergic reaction may have become an Obsessive/Compulsive Disorder requiring an anti anxiety medication. If the anti histamines do not work and the prednisone has not helped to stop this, purchase a DAP Collar for Abby available at the pet store. This is a canine pheromone that acts as a calming agent. Wrap up the affected feet so Abby cannot get to them and consider an Elizabethan collar to keep her away from these areas. The more she chews the worse she will make it causing a pyoderma causing Abby to lick even more. This circle effect must be stopped in some way. ASk your vet about other stronger anti anxiety medications if Abby is still having difficulties.Does that make sense to you?
Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.Sincerely, ***** *****
