Why Do Some Dogs Constantly Lick Their Paws?
Does your dog constantly lick his paws? Have you ever wondered why? Sometimes dogs will simply lick at their paws because they are bored or they could be doing it as a way to cope with anxiety or fear. It’s important to keep an eye on your dog when he licks at his paws and take note at what’s going on around him. You may be able to pinpoint what is causing the anxiety and help him out or distract him from his paws. Other dogs may lick or even bite at their paws because the paws or paw pads are irritated and itchy. This could be from an allergy or foot fungus. It could also be from hair that has overgrown and started to grow up between the paw pads which can be painful. The best thing to do is have your veterinarian Seven Oaks, TX examine your dog’s paws to find out the cause and prescribe appropriate treatment.
