Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?

1) What flea prevention is being used and when was it last applied?

2) Is she on any regular medications? If so, what?

This is a throw-away dog and I know nothing about her except she is the most lovable dog I have ever had. I have only had her for a few days and this trait I discovered right away. I don't know her age but she seems to be fairly young 2-3 years old. I have to get her to the vet on Monday to get her checked out. She is also a very responsive dog and comes when she is called and has been taught some skills. I called the name that was on her name id but the gentleman said he gave her away and lost all contact with the people he gave her to.

I know nothing about her shots and don't want to do anything that will arm her. My dog before her passed 4 months ago an d even know I will never be able to replace him but I was ready for a new baby.

The first thing to know is that she does need to be updated on her vaccines if there is not proof of history. This is standard protocol for any pet ownership and should not harm her even if she has had them in the past.

If she is not on a product for flea prevention, talk to your vet about this. They will have products on hand at their clinic. I am a huge fan of frontline, revolution, advantage, advantix, comfortis, bravecto, etc. If you already have something like this at home and it's in her size, dose her now and talk to your vet about fleas later.

The licking of her feet is likely due to allergies. I like, use and recommend human zyrtec from the OTC pharmacy area in stores. Here's the dosing info: http://cheyennewest.com/antihistamines-for-dogs-cats/ You will need to give this for 3-5 days before you'll see the maximum benefit. If this does not calm her itching, make sure that you talk to your vet about other options like steroid injections, atopica, apoquel, etc. There are lots of options out there for allergies.

Let me know if I can help further.
