Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hi, I'm Dr. Peter. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now and will post back with your reply ASAP.
Hello, Sam, I will do my best to help you today. First I need to ask you a few questions so that I can be well informed and give you the best advice.
1- Is she licking them excessively?
2- How long has this been going on?
3- How much does she weigh?
4- Are all 4 paws affected?
5- Can you post a picture on this chat?
Okay, I will wait for the picture. Thank you.
Thank you; it worked. Can I see a picture of the front part and if possible of her so that I can see all her paws.
Can you take a picture of the front part of the paws while she is standing?
Please give me 5-10 minutes to type your answer. Thank you.
Sam, I don't think her paws are really that bad. The redness you are seeing is part of her normal pigment. There is some discoloration of the hair in the under part which could be from moisture from the ground (grass) otherwise they look okay. I don't believe that she is licking her paws enough to even consider allergies. I would recommend you wash her paws with an antimicrobial soap like Hibiclens 1-2 times a week. You can buy Hibiclens over the counter in any pharmacy.
My goal is to provide you with excellent service. If you have any follow-up questions don't hesitate to ask. If finished, please take a moment to rate my service. See you again soon!
Sam, she does not need to see a vet for this; she will be fine. I am glad I was here to help.
You're welcome. :)
