Hello,I am sorry you are concerned about Tootsie.This red patch is most likely an irritation she is licking to relieve discomfort.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miliary_dermatitisYou can apply raw honey to any sore or irritated areas. It is a remarkable healing agent:http://winterparkhoney.ecrater.com/p/4865201/16-oz-melaleuca-honey-raw-unheatedhttp://oramanukahoney.com.au/animal_care.htmlPlease let me know if this helps Tootsie feel better soon.Please be so kind as to rate my answer with positive feedback; that is the only way I receive credit for my assistance.

Really? Is there not too much sugar in honey?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
And if she likes it will it not encourage her to keep licking it?
Expert:  Terri replied 1 year ago.
You do not need to worry about the natural sugar in honey unless Tootsie is diabetic.It is safe and healthy to lick plus it will heal that red sore in a few days.
