Welcome to Dogs chewing & licking problems.

Dogs feet, licking and chewing foot problems can drive you mad but there are ways to find and treat this problem.

Does your dog sit around all day licking his feet?

Does his feet bother him or are pink/brown and raw?

Here is some helpful information about dogs licking paws and chewing feet.

I will give you the basic facts about this problem and suggest some good medicines to heal your pets feet.

I hope to relate to you the type of injuries and leg problems you should look out for when youve got a dog licking paws and chewing on feet.

I also want to show you how to treat paw injuries, medications and treatment that will help.

Some pets always seem to be worrying at their paws and feet. The most common injuries with their paws are:

Injuries Splinters or pieces of glass Burrs and weeds Nail problems Matted hair Fleas Bruised Cracked Paws.

Nine times out of ten dog foot problems are either a foreign objects stuck in the foot or matted fur, even an slight injury will cause so much itching they will try to lick it away.

If you think your dog has a serious problem and may have broken a toe or foot bone you might see him start panting when the foot it touched.

A Veterinary doctor said that dogs do not show pain like humans do. Instead they start panting, their ears go back and they look very uncomfortable.

I know my vets office is always cold so when my dog started panting, the vet said there was something hurting him because this was how a dog shows he is in pain.

Another way a dog shows pain is they curl up in ball and wont walk around or interact with you.

They have a hard time lifting their head and just look miserable. This is a sign that there is something wrong. Go to the vet.

He will provide the proper medications to heal any injuries and infections.

This is a perfect test. If you get the dog leash and keys and your pet isn'tt right there in 3 seconds then your pet is sick or hurting.

I have two very long coated dogs and their paws, especially between the pads, can get so hairy that the hair mat and causes an uncomfortable condition and you will notice it as the dog walks. He might be limping or keep looking at his feet. Or he might lick his feet constantly. This was happening to my little girl.

She kept chewing her feet. Most dogs hate their feet being touched. She is no exception. In fact she throws a fit when I touch her feet so you have to be gentle and patient when dealing with dog foot problems. When I clipped the nails back I saw immediate improvement. Other foot problems that are common with dogs are nails that are too long. If the nail is too long, when the dog walks it keeps jamming the nail back into the nail bed causing pain. So keep those nails trimmed.

If you cant do it yourself, find a walk in groomer who will trim the nails for about $10.00. I have a groomer who is in San Mateo and they will take in walk in nail trimming. Take a look at my links page. Their name is Super pups.

If your dog gets a splinter in his foot, the best thing to do is try to get it out yourself unless you can see that its really deep or very infected. Read more about splinters here: Dogs that chew their feet can be indicative of an anxiety the dog may have because of perhaps a change in her surroundings or just about any kind of change.

Dogs will become nervous if things do not stay stable. Dogs need a natural, calm routine. Break the routine and you might have a dog that will try to compensate for the change by showing signs of anxiety and anxiousness. If licking feet is a problem and you have done all you can then a trip to the vet might be an option.

At the vet expect blood tests and x-rays. These tests are expensive but needed. If its a broken bone, only a Veterinarian can splint and give your pet medication for the pain.
