Hi, my dog has very sore hind paws
- shes licked them red raw
this weekend. it started last summer - my vet advised sudocream which has done no good at all, she just licks it off. Throughout the winter and spring it was still there but only a little bit. the fields where she has her runs have just cut the grass down for hay making and dusty. i wash her paws after every walk/run with water - no shampoo as shes allergic. Shes a nervous dog that was rescued in Cyprus, She was a wild stray and it is believed she became seperated from her mother at a very young age. She was malnourished when i got her -almost two years ago. A few days ago i changed her to a wheat free diet
. Please help - im pretty desperate.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about your dog?
Customer: She also gets slightly red around her mouth and eyes
. She looks like she may have had an injury to her back before i got her - she has a slight dent about an inch away from the top of her tail. That said - she runs very fast, her general condition is great - she has muscled up nicely (even though her build is slender0. She is happy and wags her tail - a lot! She is white ( i was told the other day that white dogs have depleted immune systms and that it could be Demadectic (?) Mange - afellow dog walker told me this.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.
