My 16 year old Border Collie has been licking her paws a lot. Is that a sign she is in pain?

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today. How long has she been doing this?Where does she lick specifically (ie tops or bottoms of her paws, wrist, etc)? Is it always the same one?Any skin changes, odors, or redness with her licking?
