Having exhausted every option, we began our own research. We read hundreds of pages of information and experimented on our dog and ourselves.
We systematically tried dozens of herbs, extracts, fatty acids, vitamins, oils, anything that might be promising.
Our dog was perfectly healthy for eight years, until one day he began licking and chewing his feet. Soon he developed infected, bleeding sores on his paws and legs, which then spread to his lips, chest, ears and eyelids.
Numerous visits to three highly experienced and dedicated vets; sometimes painful tests; and a variety of treatments, had little significant effect. He would chew his paws until they would weep and bleed.
Along the way, we came up with an elastic sock harness to help give the skin time to heal.
