My lhasa apso had his fur heavily matted in a boarding kennel, so he had to have his fur shaved off except for his tail, which is rather cute. Now, he isn't wanting to do anything, not even play or do tricks or eat pig ears. The only thing he does is scratching and licking his 'private parts' and also chasing his tail/butt and rubbing his hip all over the walls ad sofas. He is wormed and using frontline, and his anal glands have been checked. He is not peeing in the garden, which he usually does, but only in the park, so he hasn't peed for about 7 hours! He doesn't seem to want to do anything at all! Help, what shall I do? And how do I stop his itching and licking, as it is getting rather red and sore from all that? My parents refuse to take him to the vet, but monitor him for another week before doing so. Should I wait? Do dogs usually act strange after grooming? I've tried applying non itching cream and also lotion, but he licks it straight off again! I try and get him to do the tricks he know, but he isn't bothering, he just sits down in a weird position and stares at me. Help!
