Dog is Licking Paws

My dog licks her front paws until they are raw. Is there some sort of natural remedy that I can put on them to get her to stop? They are not hot spots. She began doing this 2 years ago when my husband was sick and we were in the hospital for almost a month. Any help would be appreciated.

Talk or take to vet. There is something wrong possibly mange. (07/29/2009)

I would start by worming her thoroughly with something safe like a pyrantel based product, then apply a bitter apple sort of spray. I have found my Dobie chews and licks only when he has a parasite problem. Good luck. (07/30/2009)

It could be many things, but what the vet will most likely do first is put a pail or a cone on her head so she can't lick those paws. It may be something serious or it may be a nervous habit. She will look funny in the cone, but her paws will heal up. (07/30/2009)

My dog does that too, but he has allergies to the grass so when he's outside for a long time when he comes back in he licks them raw. So maybe he has allergies. Hope I helped. (08/07/2009)
