I recently discovered that Zoey’s become a compulsive paw-licker. Her front paws have been licked so much that her fur is starting to come off, and I think she’s beginning to start on her back paws now. I know this is probably a summer allergy thing, but I don’t want to take her to the vet. I’d really prefer not to put her on any anti-steroidal/anti-inflammatory drugs unless it’s the last resort.
Have any of you had any experience with compulsive paw-licking? What did you do? Have you found any natural/home remedy solutions that have helped? Did you buy spray? Booties? Tea bags? Apple cider vinegar? I’m trying to do work here but keep popping out of my seat every 5 minutes to spy on Zoey and see if she’s licking (which she always is). I make her stop and give her a bone to chew on, but she’s back at it the minute I sit down again. I’m going to make a run to the pet store today to see if I can buy something to help her but would love to hear any of your thoughts.
Thank you in advance for any advice!
