So I am having an issue with meeko and allergies.. at least I think its allergies? He is constantlly licking/biting his paws and lower half of his body and if if pet his back he goes nuts. Ive tried hot spot treatment but he wont hold still long enough for me to get the stuff on his skin because his fur is so think. He doesnt shed much at all( and im not just saying that). Im afraid that he is going to itch his skin open. Is it a bad idea to get him NOT SHAVED but trimmed so I can reach the skin to use treat it..? If not how do I go about it?
