So, I think Captain has been licking his left paw while he's been in his crate, while I was grooming him this morning I noticed a raw spot on his paw. He has been spending more time in his crate because my husband had abdominal surgery last week, so we've not been home as much as usual. I try to make sure he has a chewy in the crate with him, but I hate that he's been licking his paws out of nerves. Any ideas to keep him occupied in the crate besides chewies? Today I've had him out of the crate since we have actually been home, I groomed him and got him cleaned up and put some hydrogen peroxide on the spot to make sure it was disinfected.
