s lost some teeth too. But for the past year he chews on his hind legs and rips the hair out and it get stuck in his mouth. I have to cut it out of his teeth almost every week. I've gotten shampoo and sprays and tried to control it cuz i'm always trying to stop him cuz he can chew and pull until he's bleeding. I don't know how to help him and i really want to because he's my best friend. If someone could help that would be great
He's old...my sister's min pin died 2 months ago, named Jessie. He was old, but that ain't the point. He would chew his paws till they bled, kind of like what you're describing with Miko but not with his fur (Jessie practically had no fur). It's apparently seen in a lot of older dogs. Take him to the vet and he/she will have a solution. And the fact that he bleeds,
! Poor Miko, he sounds so CUTE
