    Have you tried "WoundGard"? You spray it on and they hate the taste...so hopefully the licking will stop?

    Well not quite stingoes. But yeah, anti skin allergy stuff.

    I've sen dogs who develop an allergic reaction in that area. Once it was ascertained there was no foreign body in there such as splinter or grass seed etc, antihistamines would be applied.

    It's also a great ointment to have around anyway. I used to use the dog's ointment on any allergies my eldest son came up with. Lol. worked far better than the crap the doctors gave us anyway!

    I always let the dogs lick any wounds the kids had due to the healing properties in their saliva. I am disinclined to bandage anything that can create a moist environment and encourage bacteria to grow. Luckily my GP thought the same thing with the biopsy on my neck and reefed off the covering. I know a paw is different but until vet checked if I was worried I would be leaving uncovered to promote healing and bandaging if vet advised.

    well ive left it for three days and because she's constantly licking it its not healing. i have packed the area with gores and will constantly check it and re dress ive done some wound care training with horses, so i think i will monitor for the next few days and if no improvement i will seek veterinary help.

    I have been told they hate the taste of aloe vera gel. I love this gel (earth friendly brand, no alcohol, from the chemist) as it also creates a barrier whilst assisting with healing. Told my vet I was using it on the cat when his dressing came off and vet said best stuff I could use. My cat's leg had to be bandaged though so I can not say first hand to animal's dislike of its taste.
