My four legged Grandson started to lick and chew his foot.

Customer Question

My four legged Grandson started to lick and chew his foot. He ended up having 2 of his toes amputated and he was doing great but back to licking same foot. He has had to wear the cone of shame for a very long time to keep his foot from bleeding. All the vet put him prenisone and antibiotics. We are lost on what to do.

I am sorry to hear about your dog having toes amputated. Why did this have to be done? I am also sorry to see you did not get help from an expert before now; I just came online and saw your question. Do you still need help with him?
