My aussie is constantly chewing on himself and now has open

Customer Question

my aussie is constantly chewing on himself and now has open sores. We live in Colorado and went to Texas where I went to my mother's for 3 weeks and the dogs stayed with my husband at an Antiques Festival. Our other dog a Corgi has no symptoms. The Aussie is very attached to me

Please clarify for me where the dogs were. The dogs went with you to Texas and went with your husband to an Antiques Festival there? Where on Tella's body is he primarily chewing on himself?
