My baby Sofie has developed a lick sore. She's almost 5 and has never had such a thing. She has had hot spots by her ear in the past but it's been at least 2 years since the last one. I think there was something on the side of her paw that irritated her and she stated licking. I noticed it early on and put some bag balm on it and covered it up. It actually was nearly healed when I decided to stop wrapping it and then she stated licking again! Now, it's a bigger sore but I have been keeping swabbed with plain aloe vera juice and applying the bag balm and wrapping it once again.

My concern is that someone told me that these things can become obsessions and they can't stop! So I'd appeciate any tips, especially any particular topical remedy that's natural if possible. I haven't gone to the vet yet, but I'm afaid if I go they'll just want to inject her with steroids and anti-biotics, although it doesn't look or smell infected.

Thanks!
