Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Licking his nose raw... Empty

Iroh had a kitty get him where his nose meets his muzzle line at the very top. We tried to put some ointment on it but he licked it off and wouldn't stop messing with it, so rather than let it heal, he kept on licking. Now it's red and raw-- tiny patch of fur where the scratch was is pretty much gone, and he's still at it. I don't know what to do. It's definitely painful...he whines and rubs it against his pillow. I can't get him to stop and it's getting worse. Help?

Melt some coconut oil and put on it. It will help with any infection that could be causing the soreness that irritates him so much and it will absorb into the area fairly quickly so that he might get some benefit from it before he manages to completely lick it away. Once it's on you may look into rubbing bitter apple spray on his nose to deter him from licking at it so much.
