not posted here since Molly was a puppy. She is now 2 and a half and we also have another ridgeback x named Gypsy who is 1 and a half
I don't know what to do with Molly, she will not stop biting her tail. She usually licks her bum when she needs to have her anal glands emptied and there is always a fishy smell so it is not that. Her diet has not changed, the only thing I can think of is that she is reacting to us bringing our new baby home. Our bub is 7 weeks old and although Molly is great with her I have noticed a change in her behaviour. They are both getting walked everyday just as usual and have toys, are being played with. Molly has always been a bit sensitive and is very much a people person. Her poor tail is red raw because she is always chewing it :/ It has got worse this week and I thought I would ask on here before I take her to a vet. I honestly believe it is behavioural - she doesn't have fleas, has been bathed in medicated anti itch shampoo etc. She still has an appetite and is happy enough - I just keep catching her having a good munch on her tail, which now has bald spots :/ Any advice will be appreciated.
