Chewing Leg
I have a dog that keeps chewing its leg. I have put a bandage on the wound and it heals. Then I take the bandage off and as soon as I turn my back he chews it until it bleeds again.
It is always the same spot.
And this has been going on for about 2 months.

So it does heal with a bandage.
Same spot.

Have you had it looked at by a vet? There may be an identifiable underlying cause -- something embedded under the skin, localized pain, irritation or itching from a skin condition, allergies...all of these could be causing targeted chewing like that. Until you can figure out why the chewing happens, it'll be difficult to treat.

This is pretty scary. I hope your dog's vet will be able to figure out the cause. :(
