Biting and licking feetApril 3, 2020, 4:24 AM
- Q: My dog 9 months is having excessive paw licking & he bites his toe nails. Is there anything I can buy to treat this? He does not have flees or ticks I've checked & I don't want to take him outside due to the pandemic. Can you offer a temporary solution?
- A: The majority of those cases have their roots in allergy (contact or inhaledâ€ along with secondary yeast overgrowth in the nail beds. Using an antifungal shampoo on the feet can help but it can take 1-2 times weekly for 3 or more weeks to see the benefit.
