Poplin, in the last couple weeks, has appeared to consistently bite his hindquarters in an attempt to scratch an itch of some sort. He's got patches where he's nibbled fur away on his thighs, it's kinda gross!
My fiance said she caught him eating the cat's food a few times and I've heard that can cause dogs to get hot spots. Not sure what else it could be caused by? Not enough oil in his diet perhaps? We could try adding fish or veggie oil to his daily food routine.....He's eating Canidae and 1 raw egg every day, with the occasional raw beef or chicken and cottage cheese or yogurt....and he gets table scraps from time to time.
Anyway, it appears as though he's not itching as much this week as he was before....but still I notice that once in awhile he just goes crazy trying to "scratch that itch"...
Help a brotha out.
