Customer Question

My 8-year old Havanese has started licking like crazy...his paws constantly. So far I've spent close to $1,000 at my vets...blood work, medicine, special shampoo, etc. He has also had problems with ear infections but I think I've solved that by changing his diet to eexclude potatoes and chicken. But...he still licks his paws...no hot spots at all. What else can I do for him?

Hello my name is***** and I am a licensed veterinarian with over 9 years of experience. I am hoping to help you with your pet Teddy today. Since I can’t physically exam your pet, I may need to respond with several follow up questions so I can best help you. Remember there is no limit on how many questions you can ask to in order to clarify any information I have provided regarding your pet. I just have a few initial questions to ask to gather some more information if you don’t mind? What medications has he been on already? Has Teddy been allergy tested? What type of bloodwork was done?
