Biting her paws.

Species: Dog
Breed: cockapoo
Age: 2-5 years
my dog is biting her paws why is she? she had fleas but we gave her a pill so when they bite her they die.




Online vet, Dr. Marie

Dr. Marie replied:

The most common reason for a dog to bite her paws is due to allergies. The vast majority of allergies are environmental. Food can sometimes be the culprit, but it is not as common as environmental allergies.

There are many treatments for allergies, but most dogs do need small doses of steroids.
