Rex has been licking his foot lately. The people we got him from said he got hit by a car when he was a young dog and he apparently licks the scar on his foot as well as the joint where the vet says he has arthritis. He licks it so much that all the fur comes off and you can see his black skin underneath where it starts to chafe and get sore.
Unfortunately for Rex, excessive licking means he’s stuck with a cone. The kids think the cone is hilarious but I think Rex looks pretty pathetic with it on. Fortunately, Rex has figured out how to still eat his food and drink his water with the cone on so we don’t have to constantly take it on and off and his sore is starting to heal.
