I have two Maltese & Jill (yes!). One is constantly chewing

I have two Maltese Jack & Jill (yes!). One is constantly chewing on her paws when not doing anything else, the other sometimes. someone told me this was from walking on poisons on the grass, such as bug or weed sprays. They also said another vet recommended eating Charcoal - is this correct? They said it absorbed the poisons in them and they pass it. Is Diatomaceous Earth the same thing? Should I put it in their food?Thank You,Dan O'Connor

My dog keeps shaking his head and digging at his ears. I had

My dog keeps shaking his head and digging at his ears. I had him in in February for this and they washed his ears but found nothing and gave him a short dose of an antibiotic and general. Said it was an allergy. I have since kept up the benadryl and ear wash. Had him groomed yesterday and it started all over again. Back on benadryl. Vet won't give anymore antibiotic which really seemed to help the most. My charge was $590 for this one visit. We are both retired and that hurt. What can be wrong that it keeps returning? He is a super clean dog and lives indoors all the time. I just had him groomed yesterday and they cleaned his ears. I forgot to mention he is a yellow lab. Really sweet dog. Help please!
