It sounds like he may be battling allergies, is he on any medication at this time?

The gentaved may help to reduce the itchy sensation and, yes, may help him. You can certainly try using this but we want to try to keep him from licking it, as well. Do you have an e-collar at home that you can use for him once this has been sprayed on his feet?
