Itchy by tail
by: Henry

I would talk to your vet because it sounds like he has developed a "hot spot". Which is an area that is inflamed due to excessive licking/biting. Maybe your vet can you get one of those cone shaped victorian style collars -the kind that they put on your dog after surgery. I would put that on and then also put on some perscription antibiotic lotion on the tail so that the red inflamed part can heal. Also during that time you need to redirect your dog to chew on something else rather then his tail because now it is a habit. You can give him a chewy type toy like a Kong filled with peanut butter and biscuits.
