Post: Quaker and mutilation
Posted by Spanky on 4/10/05
I have a 5 year old Quaker named Spanky. He has a
plucking/mutilation problem. It started a about 4 years
ago he plucked and bite his neck so badly that he needed
stitches. We found out that he had a crop infection. Now
he is plucking and biting his thigh to where it's
bleeding. We made collar out of a toilet paper roll
wrapped in gauze until we can get him to the vet tomorrow.
It really is disturbing.... do they do this because
they are sick or because of an emotional problem?? I mean
if he were plucking his neck I would think that he might
have another infection, but his thigh..... what could
cause him to bite himself till he bleeds there??
I am at my wits end.
