He has pink furr paws, seems like it been going on for a while.

Customer Question

He has pink furr paws, seems like it been going on for a while. Not sure if its from tear ducts? He does NOT have pink stained on his face...could this be from a urinary tract infection/ licking?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. There are all sorts of infestations the dog can pick up. I'll have you talk to the Veterinarian who'll sort out what is wrong and help you decide what to do about it. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Sammy age 10. We are taking him to the vet this week, so is this going to cost anything today?
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Sammy?
Customer: Breed; Shiztu - cataracts, otherwise very healthy and active.
