Excessive Paw Licking: What to Look Out For

Now and then some dogs may be inclined to lick their paws for a number of reasons including local irritation, joint pain & cleanliness.

If you notice your dog persistently and aggressively licking or picking at their paws it may be a sign of an injury, laceration or even Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. It’s common for dog paws to appear cracked or dry, often the case with pets spending time on hard surfaces and developing thickened pads.

Clean your pet’s paws with warm soap and water.
