I have a maltipoo and he has been biting and licking his

Customer Question

I have a maltipoo and he has been biting and licking his back left paw or over a week now, he bites and licks it so much it turns red, he will not allow us to touch his paw and when he sleeps he wont lay down the paw he has been biting and licking. I don't know what to do, and I cannot afford the vet
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The veterinarian will know how to help the dog. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: his name is ***** ***** he will be 2 December 10th
JA: Is there anything else the veterinarian should be aware of about Bubba?
Customer: no he just started doing this like I said about a week ago, he was fine up until then

Is it just this particular foot?

Can you include pictures of the foot that are clear and detailed?

When was he last groomed?

On any meds?
