She's chewing the paint and plaster off the wall corner

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Strange behavior is often perplexing. I'm sure the Veterinarian can help you. What is the dog's name and age?

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the dog's name?

Mitzi

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Mitzi?

No I don't think so. She's a pure bred English bulldog and she is biting me compulsively

She had diarrhea last night. I have a pet sitter who comes when I'm at work to walk , feed and play with her and when I'm home we play. Also we are in puppy kindergarten class every Wednesday evening. She has a plethora of chew toys and teething rings but they appear to occupy her 5 mins at the most and then she's back chewing the separation gate, wall, step, tray and chairs. Not to mention my wrists, hands and thighs!!!
