I have a nine year old bichon/lhasa mix. He has started licking and scratching and pacing at night, keeping everyone awake. I have tried the boiled chicken and rice diet, we have been on immunosuppressants, cortisone both po and injections, we have tried topical sprays and creams including genesis, we have been on benadryl and claritin. We even tried antischizophrenics (vet idea) with no luck. We've used every bath soap and conditioner there is. I am so tired and need to sleep. If I crate him, he barks, with breaks to lick and scratch. If I put him out of the room, he scratches the door, put him outside he scratches the door, crate him in a different room he barks. I have tried correcting the behavior and offering an acceptable alternative with chew toys to no avail. He is obsessed with the licking now, which started with allergies. He has progressively gotten worse. Does anyone know anything that will work for this? I'm at the end of my rope!
