Question:

Our jack is 2yrs old. About 2 weeks after we gave him his first flea treatment(the drops on the neck) he has begun to lick himself all over his genital area, mostly his testicles. I have timed him, he will do this for almost 10 min. It is very annoying at night on our bed to hear this constant licking sound. The feas are gone and he will sometimes chew on himself down there too. It's like living with a cat. No hair (that's noticable) is coming out because of this. Is he feeling a sensation from the flea drops or do his testicles bother him. HELP!! My jack is turning into a cat!!!
