Bentley doesn't have the best litter habit as he is not neutered yet (we will be doing so soon) and sometime when he is in deep sleep i notice he has a habit of peeing where he is. At first I thought it was a UTI or something worse like neurological but a vet visit ruled both out. He only does it when he's deep in sleep and now I think he does it unconsciously when he's a sleep. So because of this habit, his heel is very crusty. You can see it in the picture before. I don't want to cut it because it's not very fluffy there and I don't want to nick his skin. I try to use a warm damp towel but he hates anyon touching his feet.

Will shedding his winter coat help shed the crusty fur away?

It might. They have really heavy molts, so maybe. If he doesn’t seem to be in any pain, I would just wait until his neuter. It could be territorial peeing during sleep maybe. As long as he’s energetic and not in pain, he should be fine until the neuter.
