Fergus Fellini managed to get a small burn on his back after his Momma dropped a pot of spaghetti on the floor. This was about two weeks ago. Took him and got him burn creme and antibiotics, and he is really okay. Poor baby. However, just when the burn heals and scabs over, he goes nuts. It's right at the base of his tail, so when it scabs, and he twitches his tail, it pulls a little. This of course makes him twitch his tail more and then procede to lick the scar off. Any suggestions on making him stop. The burn heals more and more and is definitely getting smaller, despite his licking, but I think if he stopped it would heal faster. The vet tried putting an e collar on him, with bad results. He bashed his head on the floor trying to get it off. So that obviously is not an option... Can anyone think of any other ideas?
