am having problems with Alys, she has started to chew and lick her front paws. I have heard of this before but do not know if anything can be done to stop it. Her paws look really sore, but only the front ones. She did it a little last summer but stopped after a few weeks, this time they really seem to bother her, even in the middle of the night. I would be grateful of any advice. Have enclosed a photo taken after our trip to Crufts in March, we went on to the Peak District for a few days, no rain then !!!
Thanks Rod, Chris, Lucy & Alys
Thank you Rod and Chris, I know how difficult it can be to stop once the habit of paw licking gets a hold. Many bedlingtons have this problem including my old girl Chelsea. She has licked her paws since a pup and been on steroids and anti fungal shampoo baths on and off most of her life. The only medication that seemed to work for her is “ Cotravance” Spray. It is not a cure to what could well be an allergy but it does stop the itching and heals the inflamed red skin in between the toes. Unfortunately after a time the condition returns and we have to resort to once again using the spray.
