Barkleigh woke up yesterday licking and biting at the back of his hind lower leg. Even though this is Florida, we are in the deciduous zone and have various weed seeds and burrs that catch on his coat, especially his feathery legs. I comb these out several times a day. I think he probably was digging for a hidden one and got too aggressive. He then kept at it and made a nasty wound. We've talked to the vet and have soaked, shaved, wrapped lightly, put a bit of cortisone cream on it and given him a mild antihistimine in case it is itching. We'll get a cone that fits tomorrow (others are too small).
Anyone with experience with Cavs worrying their legs or wounds and ideas. Barkleigh has been scratching a lot and I've treated him for flea dermititis as suggested here. We also have tons of mosquitos and no-seems and these might bother him as well.
