my friend has a Morky about 1 1/2 years old. he is on special food from the vet due to allergies. he is now biting and licking all 4 paws and one of his upper legs and losing hair in those areas; the areas are very raw looking. my friend thinks this is normal behavior; I can't convince him to see his vet. any thoughts as to the cause?
