Every once in a while (every 2 weeks or so) my dog's entire body looks very red, almost as if he has been bitten all over his body. To make things worse is he stratches himself constantly causing himself to bleed. The scabs then ich some more resulting in an endless cycle of stratching and bleeding. Is this because of allergies? Should I limit his time outside? He loves to go out during the night an bark at some "unknown" creature in the dark, should I not allow him to do so from now on?
In addition his paws are constantly red. No blisters or anything, but he is constantly licking them... Is this something born from boredem or is this a problem?
I want to stop him from sctraching and licking himself so much, he is leaving bruises and scabs all over his stomach, feet and ears.
