Our Clinical Grade Wound Wash helps
soothe dry, irritated paws.
Dry skin and wounds can lead dogs to paw chewing, causing tissue damage.
Why Does My Pup Chew on His Paws?
As with other dog behaviors, there can be several reasons that lead dogs to lick or chew their paws.
These include injuries; skin problems; environmental, parasite, or food allergies. Boredom or anxiety growths, like cysts, lipomas, and warts, can also cause discomfort on paws.
Irritants like burrs or ticks lead dogs to lick until the offending item is removed.
Occasional paw licking is normal for dogs as a part of their self-grooming process, especially when they come inside after walking on dirty or sandy ground.
However, if your dog is licking and chewing their paws excessively when they do not appear to be dirty, it's time to start looking into their behavior.
When a dog excessively chews their paws, there is almost always an underlying problem causing their behavior.
Rule Out Injuries, Etc.
The first step to take, especially if the licking begins very suddenly and is focused on one paw, is to examine the paws to make certain there is not an injury such as a cut, torn nail, growth, or perhaps a stone, thorn, or ice ball stuck between the pads. Look closely at the nails, between the toes and pads, and at the tops of the feet.
If the paw pads and feet appear normal, the licking could be due to a skin condition (dermatitis), which often is the result of bacterial problems, allergies, or food sensitivities. Your dog could develop dermatitis by being allergic to chemicals used in your yard, or certain types of grass or weeds.
If you and your veterinarian have ruled out the above problems, then your dog may be suffering from boredom or a behavioral problem such as anxiety. Some dogs develop compulsive behaviors, which include paw licking.
