Here is one for the veterinarian.
My GSP recently chewed the shit out of her back legs. Nibbled them red raw. At first I thought it was the concrete in her run causing the problem but a dose of flea treatment sorted it out so I'm guessing she was just itchy.
They have healed up well, but have left scars kind of like callouses. Can you (or anyone else) recommend something that will reduce the scarring? They are pretty obvious and I have had to start telling people they were caused by a huge scrappy boar.

Hmmm not easy. Steroid ointment can reduce formation earlier on and would help if there is inlammation remaining but if it is mature scar tissue its not likely to shift. Any pics porkers?
