Hello. My name is***** and I am a veterinarian that can answer your question. I understand Zena has a chronic history of swelling on the front feet. It sounds like the swelling goes away when he is on medication, but then it returns once the treatment is completed. Is that a correct summary of the problem? Also, is it just the front feet that he is licking excessively, or is there an itching behavior anywhere else on the body?
