I received a very concerned call from Deb Aebi about Jackson and his lick granuloma. Lick granuloma start as small sores and get bigger as a dog licks the sore. The following is Deb’s story.
“Jackson is a 9 year old Australian Shepard and developed a 4” long lick granuloma on his right paw. He wore a cone around his neck for 4 weeks. During that time he was placed on antibiotics and we visited his veterinarian on three separate occasions to have the wound cleaned. Nothing I did could stop him for re-injuring the wound. Jackson and I were just miserable. I was so afraid that my dog would lose his leg unless we could stop his incessant licking. I spent hours on the Internet researching lick granuloma and treatment and found an article posted on the www.dogleggs.com about successful lick granuloma treatment involving the Tellington TTouch® technique. I queried for Tellington Touch practitioners in the Twin Cities area and found Animal Bridges.
