How to stop your dog from licking its paws

Dog licking it's paws

Understanding and Managing Paw Licking in Dogs

Written by Dr. Nicole Rous, Mont Albert Veterinary Surgery

Paw licking is a common issue among dogs, and it can be particularly frustrating for pet owners. The behavior is often a symptom of underlying issues, such as allergies or stress. Here's a guide to help you understand and manage this behavior in your dog.

Identifying the Cause

Allergies are a common reason for paw licking. Your dog's skin may react to allergens like pollen, grass, or even certain foods, causing itchiness and discomfort.

Conventional Treatments

Most vets will recommend topical steroid lotions or antifungal shampoos to control the itch and any secondary infections. However, these are not long-term solutions.

Holistic Approaches

For a more natural approach, consider using Soothe Skin Balm from Shy Tiger. The balm contains plant extracts like calendula, plantain, and chickweed that can help soothe the itch.

Supplements for Relief

If the issue persists, you might consider adding supplements to your dog's diet. Antinol Rapid for Dogs is an excellent source of fatty acids that can help with skin issues. P.E.A. Plus is another supplement that can help manage chronic pain and inflammation.

Stress-Induced Licking
