Did You Know…..Why Dogs chew on their Paws

People always wonder why dogs chew on their paws. It could be several different reasons. Here are just a few:

Dogs are just like people and they could be an allergic reaction to their food or perhaps even pollen. They may develop rash that may itch.

If the weather is dry, it could cause them to have dry skin. Dogs try to soothe the area by licking it or even by chewing on it.

Sometimes when they are depressed, they tend to lick or chew on their paws. By being left alone, they can get depressed or when they are sick. When they are sick, they get sad and can cause them to chew on their paws.

I would suggest that if you see your dog chewing on his paws, look to make sure that your dog isn’t insured in some way. If they are injured, they chew on their paws to relieve the pain.

For dogs to chew on their paws is very normal. If they continue to chew day in and day out, you may want to take them to the vet to get them checked out. You don’t want an underlying problem to go unresolved. In the meantime, enjoy your beautiful pet.
