Lab always chews and licks feet??

10 posts in this topic

My lab is always licking her feet. She even chews lightly at them. She has been doing this for quite some time now and I wonder if I should be worried. Is it an allergic reaction to say carpet??? Should I give her benadryl? Anyone else have this happening??? Its always during down time at home and she never seems like she is in any pain nor that it bothers her in daily routines.

Dog allergies are usually food based. I would guess that she has dry pads. I'd pick up some dog pad balm and try that. dog boots might help in the winter when shes outside.

My chocolate had this same problem starting every year in the fall. It drove me crazy. The solution for her was to get an allergy shot at the vet. It cost $25 for the shot but it's well worth it as she is much more comfortable and does not think twice about her paws now. So one shot each fall was the ticket for her and she's happy as can be now. Good Luck!

I would suggest also trimming back the fur from between the pads of the dog. In the winter, with the snow, ice, icemelt and everything else its a help to the dog.

my lab the day after hunting him, will chew and lick his paws. Not as often as you described though.

Apparently it's not cool to give the name of my vet on here. So I'll just tell you it's in Albany

    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
