We have had our pit for about 18 months, since he was 6 weeks old. We love him so much. His name is Scout. He is beautiful light tan brindle. He is such a couch potatoe. Loves fetch and tug, but other than walking up to get the kids from school he is happy to lay around on the couch and chew on his bone. He loves to chew. Made the Kong testers list because he destroyed a snugga and a wubba in less than 3 days. That actually brings me to the question.
Over the summer we adopted a rescue dog. Not a pit. Lucky is a husky/shepard mix. Out little pit loves to run and play with him. Lucky is about a foot taller than Scout, so they are a pretty even match. They both play hard, and don't hurt each other. However, somehow Lucky got fleas about 3 weeks ago. Getting rid of the fleas was not that hard, but Scout started chewing on himself, and now he will not stop. He is making the spot at the base of his tail bleed. We have tried bathing him to get rid of anything that could cause him to itch. And we also tried putting mosturising cream, but nothing seems to be helping him. At times we have to mussle him just to get him to stop chewing. He woudl rather chew on himself than his toys. Any advice?
