Feet Licks

Mr. Tim asks:
Does your dogs lick their feet and if so, any preventatives?


Mother:
Yes.
I wipe their feet when they come inside IF the grass is wet or damp.
I have used socks and medicated shampoo foot soaks.

Recognizing the triggers, for me is key in order to avoid the outside area which is the irritant. If Edward and Lily walk in wet or damp grass, the result is foot irritation and at times an infection between their paw pads.

  3. Cinderella used to lick her feet a lot when she had a yeast infection on her paws. Wiping the paws regularly with a mix of apple cider vinegar and water helped a lot.

  10. Dear Lily and Edward,

    Why do the people always fuss when we spend time licking our paws? Don't they know that licking fixes everything?

  13. Hmmm...interesting. All the kids in this house lick their feet from time to time. Yes my mom and dad wipe our feets if they get wet or damp. Sam gets his feet and legs and other parts lasered and that helps with soreness but in Lily's case, it might kill off any bacteria or itritation she might be experiencing. It's non invasive.

  18. Great answer. Funny, except during snow season, our pups almost never lick their feets.

  22. Chooey has that same habit. It's a good thing, it's not something she does often. I think it's because there are times that she's bored. Sigh...
