Springer biting leg NEW
by: Betsy Kiehl

I have noticed my springer has just started this. There are alot of reasons for this behavior...allergies are not the only reason unfortunately. Oh if only it were that simple. It can be stress, boredom (in active breeds like springers) and lonlieness....etc. I have noticed that my springer does it in my absence. When I come home from being away, her leg is always worse. It can be treated with antilicking ointment (which tastes bad and discourages licking), etc. Not a bad idea to consult the vet in case of allergies, though.

Leg biting NEW

Unfortunately, springers can be very prone to food and other allergies - this can cause them to lick, scratch and nibble until they get very sore. Might be worth checking this out with the vet?
