Lick Dermatitis (ALD)

Lick Granuloma

“When a dog constantly licks a certain spot on his body, it eventually becomes inflamed. The skin thickens and the area never gets a chance to heal because the dog won't leave it alone. In addition, the licking and inflammation makes the spot itchy, which causes more licking and creates a vicious cycle of itching and licking.”

This can lead to a secondary problem, “like a bacterial infection or ruptured hair follicles or apocrine sweat glands. The secondary condition can make the itch much worse and exacerbate the itch-lick cycle.” Dr. Karen Shaw Becker

skin mites

Demodectic mange is “caused by the mite species Demodex canis, which lives inside the hair follicles, and is usually the result of an underdeveloped or suppressed immune system.”

“The Sarcoptes scabei mite causes sarcoptic mange, also known as canine scabies.” “Sarcoptic mange is highly contagious and can infest not only dogs, but also other animals, including cats and people.”
