Is Your Dog Licking Paws Uncontrollably? Here’s What You Can Do About It

Help! My dog is licking his paws raw and I don’t know what to do!

Is your dog licking or chewing its paws to the point they appear red, irritated, or raw? This is an incredibly common scenario for dog owners. Sure, dogs are weirdos sometimes. But constant paw licking might be a sign that something else is wrong.

Think back to the last time you had a mild to moderate rash, bug bite or scab. Did you get the urge to pick or scratch at it? It’s the same thing for your dog, only your dog doesn’t understand that licking and chewing make the problem worse, so they just don’t quit.

Why Do Dogs Lick And Chew Their Paws?

If your dog constantly licks its paws, it’s likely a sign that something else is wrong. Dryness and allergies are the most commons instigators. But excessive paw licking could also indicate a more serious medical condition, like a yeast infection or hyperkeratosis.

7 Reasons Dogs Constantly Lick And Chew Paws

  1. Dry dog paws. Weather and the elements can dry out your dog’s paws. Untreated, they can become tender. They could even crack or bleed over time, especially if your dog is licking paws all the time.
  2. Allergies. Food or environmental triggers can cause allergic reactions that make a dog’s paws and/or skin extremely itchy. Dogs can be allergic to a variety of things, including mold, pollen, pesticides, and certain household cleaning products.
  3. Yeast Infection. Yeast infections make a dog’s skin overproduce oil and become extremely itchy. Then the scratching usually leads to more sores where the yeast then spreads.
  4. Pain. Dogs have a strong instinct to lick and clean their wounds. Even if the pain is somewhere other than their paws, they may lick them as a comforting mechanism.
  5. Hyperkeratosis. Hyperkeratosis is a condition that results in thickened skin on dog paws. Extra keratin on the pads can make walking uncomfortable.
  6. Exposure to chemicals. Seasonal things like de-icing salts and garden fertilizers can irritate a dog’s skin. Even certain household cleaning products have toxic chemicals that cause itchiness and inflammation.
  7. Gastrointestinal (GI) problems. It’s much rarer, but GI issues have also been anecdotally linked to excessive paw licking.

What if my dog suddenly starts limping or licking just one paw?

If the licking comes on suddenly, there’s a good chance it’s related to pain — especially if it’s isolated to one specific paw. If you can’t find any visible signs of a wound or insect bite, take your puppy to the vet as soon as possible. The same goes for limping. It’s possible that your dog has a more serious issue, like a muscle sprain or fracture.

How to Treat Itchy or Irritated Dog Paws

Paw Soother

Paw Soother Stick

Whatever you do, don’t ignore the problem. Allowing your dog to chew away at itchy and irritated paws will make the problem worse and increase the likelihood of infection.

Luckily, there’s an all-natural solution to the problem… Meet Paw Soother! This gentle but effective balm glides right on sensitive, sore or damaged dog paws and instantly provides soothing, healing and protective properties. Each organic ingredient lovingly packed inside this pawesome product plays an important role in reducing inflammation and providing the nourishing moisture paws need to start healing.

Paw Soother is a unique herbal-based paw balm that contains just the right blend of moisture-rich properties. It’s used to soothe and treat paw pads that are dry and chapped, as well as hyperkeratosis of the paw.

What if Dog Licking Paws Still Doesn’t Stop?

People ask us all the time: “how do I stop my dog from licking Paw Soother after it’s applied?” First and foremost, know that it’s 100% safe for your dog to consume Paw Soother. Of course, you’d rather the balm stay on your dog’s paws where you put it.

So, try playing a game, brushing your dog, or doing something to distract him from licking for 10-15 minutes after you apply Paw Soother. This gives it time to soak into the skin and start working. As paws begin to heal, licking should decrease.

Additionally, try and find the original cause of the paw irritation to reduce further contact and outbreaks. Continue applying Paw Soother a couple of times per day, or as needed, to provide a barrier of protection between your dog’s paws and potential contaminants.

Looking for even more paw protection after your dog’s paws are healed and back to normal? PawTection is similar but is specially formulated with a waxier base to provide additional protective qualities after Paw Soother works its magic.

A soaking bath can also help relieve itchiness

If your dog’s licking is related to itchiness or allergies, a nice soothing soaking bath can help minimize symptoms. Here are three all-natural soaks to try:

  1. Colloidal oatmeal. Yep, the same thing you bathed in as a kid with chicken pox works well for dogs too. We recommend using an oatmeal shampoo that’s hypoallergenic or labeled for dogs with sensitive skin. Very few shampoos are all natural, but those usually have the least amount of lower quality ingredients, like formaldehyde.  
  2. Epsom salt. Salts can raise your dog’s natural pH level, which can help to kill bacteria that causes inflammation. Follow the directions on the product to determine the appropriate amount of salt and soaking time.
  3. Baking soda. Like salt, baking soda can impact skin pH and acts as an anti-inflammatory to soothe the skin. Plus, it’ll help freshen your dog’s coat as well!

How to Maintain Healthy Dog Paws This Winter

Healthy dog paws are smooth to the touch and free of abrasions. Unfortunately, harsh winter weather can create a storm of issues for your dog’s paws. By using the right dog paw wax and a few simple precautions, you can protect your dog’s paws against cold surfaces, deicers and more of winter’s harshest side effects.

But first…

Why is Winter So Hard on Your Dog’s Paws?

From the cold weather to deicers, here are the most common reasons your dog’s paws suffer during winter.

Cold Weather = Dry Skin

Winter’s cold and dry air dries out your dog’s skin just like it does yours. A lack of moisture leaves your dog more susceptible to rough or damaged paw pads.

Frost Bite + Hypothermia

Dogs can suffer from frost bite and hypothermia.

Ice Balls

Walking around outside, especially with long nails, can cause ice, snow and debris to painfully clump up between your dog’s toes.

Salts & Deicers are Toxic

Most salt and deicers used on roadways are toxic to dogs. If your dog goes out for a walk he might end up with toxic deicers on his paws, which can cause burning or irritation. Dogs then lick and chew at their paws, ingesting the harmful chemicals.

Pre-Winter Prep to Maintain Healthy Dog Paws

Before the first winter storm ever arrives, do these three things:

  1. Trim back your dog’s hair all around his or her paws to prevent ice balls from building up and causing painful damage.
  2. Trim your dog’s nails; this is an important activity all year round, but even more-so in the winter. Long nails cause your dog’s paws to splay out, making it easier for snow, ice and debris to build up in the paw.
  3. Invest in a good dog paw wax (more on that later).

After winter arrives, do these three things to maintain healthy dog paws:  

  1. Take more frequent shorter walks, as opposed to 1-2 long walks a day. This helps limit the risk of frost bite and hypothermia. Signs of hypothermia include shivering, as well as acting lethargic or anxious.
  2. Always clean your dog’s paws with a warm moist towel after walking outside. This removes any deicers or other chemicals that may be attached to your dog’s paws and prevents further irritation while keeping your dog from licking toxins. It also allows you to remove ice balls that may have formed between your dog’s toes.
  3. Protect your dog’s paws against harsh winter elements by applying an all-natural dog paw wax before you go on a walk. To restore moisture, apply a moisturizing dog paw balm after you return and clean paws.

What can I put on my dog’s paws to protect them in the winter?

We can all agree dog boots are great for a funny Instagram video, but dogs don’t usually love wearing shoes as much as we do. Plus, they are annoying to get on and off and often end up forgotten about in a drawer while your dog’s paws remain unprotected. Dog paw wax offers a barrier protection against harsh winter elements, like dog shoes but without all the doggone fuss.

Nothing beats Natural Dog’s unique organic and all-natural dog paw products. To make it even more pawesome, we have two options:

One to Soothe & Heal: Paw Soother

Paw Soother is specially formulated to soothe and heal dry, irritated, red, peeling, crusty or rough paw pads.

& Another To Protect: PawTection

PawTection is specially formulated to protect paws against future damage while locking in moisture to keep paws smooth and hydrated.

Are Dry Paw Pads Really That Bad?

Dry or cracked dog paws are often a source of irritation, leading to licking, chewing and an increased risk of bacterial infections. If your dog is constantly licking and chewing at his paws it’s likely a secondary infection could develop. Additionally, small cuts that form on dry paw pads can lead to pain, limping and reduced activity levels.

Before & After PawSoother Review: Maci-Grace

“My dog Maci-Grace had the roughest paws, and they feel as though they’re ready to crack at any minute,” writes Kassidy about her beloved pup. Kassidy and Maci-Grace officially kissed their paw worries goodbye after discovering PawSoother.

“I’m a sold customer for good because it was every bit worth it! I only apply it 2-3 times a week to my dogs paws and it took about 2 weeks to see a difference. Not to mention, it soothes her all the way to a nap when I apply it. Love the product!”

The PawTection Challenge Continues: Learn How To Protect Dog Paws

Want to pawtect your pup’s paws?

PawTection is the all natural way to protect dog paws!

The PawTection Challenge Continues with three more pawesome Instagrammers, @lifeofscout_, @bellethenewfie, and @eddthepug! Our mission is simple: Help protect as many dog paws as pawsible. Our all natural, vegan and organic PawTection does just that, providing a protective barrier against the elements and your dog’s paws.

Go ahead, call your dog over and take hold of his or her paw. Is it smooth to the touch or rough and cracked—like your heels after you miss a few months of pedicures? Your dog’s paws are tough but they are not tough enough to stand up to hot pavement on a summer’s day, or long runs on sandy beaches. Hence why your dog’s paws are rough and damaged. If you don’t protect dog paws, rough paws can become painful, cracked and infected.

While dog shoes are great for a hilarious Instagram video, they’re not exactly practical nor do dogs tend to like wearing them. No shoes necessary, PawTection provides seamless protection against:

  • Hot surfaces
  • Harsh elements (salts, ice, snow, rough terrain, etc.)
  • Contact allergens (mold, pollen, grass, etc.)

As part of our PawTection Challenge, we sent PawTection to some of the doggone biggest Instagram stars out there. Here’s what happened when these 3 cutie-pies gave PawTection a try!

Edd of @eddthepug

With over 100,000 Instagram followers and a little French bulldog brother (@archie_thefrenchbulldog) to look after, Edd the Pug lives a rather busy life. This popular pug spends a lot of time at the beach, and as we’ve said so many times before… sand is ruff on paws. It’s important to protect dog paws or else they are sure to get cracked and “scaly,” just like Edd’s.

Edd’s humom Andrea writes, “PawTection is amazing, we walk mainly on the beach where there is a lot of shingle, sand, salt and stones that are rough on a dogs paws, but pawTection is soothing and moisturizing. We have been using it before our walk and as you can see the difference it’s made in a few short weeks. The feel of the paw has changed too, it’s not dry or cracking and doesn’t feel scaly now. We will be using it to pawtect our paws from now on!”

Scout of @lifeofscout_

Scout is a future therapy dog and beloved golden retriever with 27,000 followers to paw! Golden retrievers are ACTIVE and Scout’s paws showed clear signs of her nonstop activity. In fact, Scout’s rough paws led her humom Korrin to reach out to us.

“We originally reached out to The Natural Dog Company hoping to find a product that would help the roughness of Scout’s paws. Every time she pawed at us it felt like sand paper. I fell in love with the natural ingredients and the amazing reviews about the company. A cruelty free, veterinarian recommend, all natural and organic product… sign us up! It smells amazing and we didn’t have any issues getting it on her paws. A very thin layer is all you need. We loved the consistency because she wasn’t able to lick it off like a cream and it settled extremely fast unlike a liquid. After the first day we noticed how much healthier her paws looked and how much it protected her paws while we were outside. Having something that is preventative is so important with all of the adventures we go on. Thank you Natural Dog Company for helping our little girl have healthy paws again!” —Korrin, Scout’s humom

Belle is an up and coming Instagram superstar and we can’t get enough of this massive Newfoundland—she’s so dang cute! Prior to using PawTection, Belle’s young paws were already starting to wear out. They become so irritated Belle was constantly licking and chewing at her paws.

“Her paws have always been dry and rough due to always going from in and out of water to dry land… I would always watch her bite her paws and I never understood why she did that. Ever since applying the product [PawTection] I haven’t seen her bite at her paws once! I would not hesitate in recommending these products to our friends and followers.” -Angel Saucedo

How to Heal Burned Dog Paws

The best way to treat burned dog paws should relate to the severity of the burn. Here are some helpful tips to determine the best form of treatment for your sweet pup.

“Shake,” you command, extending your hand out for your dog to take. When your dog responds, placing his paw in your hand, you notice

dry paws to moist paws with paw soother

Before

something isn’t right. Perhaps your dog is acting like their paw is sore. Or, maybe the paw pad doesn’t look or feel like it should; it’s rough, overly warm, or extremely red, raw or otherwise damaged. Your dog’s paw pads are at risk of burning from so many things, from household chemicals to walking on hot pavement. When the thermostat reads over 80°F, man-made ground surfaces become painfully hot and can reach well over 100°F.

If your dog swims a lot, their paw pads are at a greater risk of burning. Water softens paw pads and so when dogs walk on hot asphalt or other surfaces after getting out of water their paws are ultra-sensitive and more prone to burning or cracking.

Signs of Burned Dog Paws

  • Rough or dry paw pads—a sign that your dog’s paws are wearing out or repeatedly exposed to overly hot asphalt or other surfaces.
  • Your dog won’t stop licking and chewing at their paws—a clear sign that paws are causing them discomfort or pain.
  • Paw pads are darker than usual
  • Part of the paw pad is missing
  • Paw pads are blistered or red
  • Your dog is limping, refusing to walk or reluctant to go outside

How to Treat Burned Dog Paws

The second you notice your dog’s paws are burned or your dog is showing signs of discomfort, run paws under cool water or use a cool compress.

If entire chunks of the paw are missing or your dog appears in pain, visit your veterinarian as soon as possible. Your vet can identify more serious or deep burns as well as prescribe antibiotics or pain medications as needed.

dry paws to moist paws with paw soother

After

If your dog remains in good spirits but their paws are mildly burned, it’s time to start treating the problem before it gets worse. Dogs love to lick burned paws, but licking only makes the problem worse and can lead to infection. You can wrap your dog’s paws to prevent licking (which is easier than it sounds), or you can apply a soothing balm like Paw Soother to reduce discomfort, speed up healing, and help deter licking—a win-win-win! Even if your dog continues to lick at paws, it is perfectly safe to consume Paw Soother, after all it’s made from all-natural and organic plant-based materials. You should still do your best to distract your dog from licking by playing games, brushing your dog, or busting out his favorite chew toy.

Made from plant-based ingredients, Paw Soother is infused with moisturizing and soothing qualities that expedite the healing process. It also reduces the risk of infection thanks to its anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties.

Prevention is Key: How to Prevent Burned Dog Paws

If you use a product like Paw Soother to heal your dog’s paws, you’ll notice how soft and smooth they become. While this signifies a healthy paw, it also means your dog is at greater risk of burned paw pads again. You should never walk your dog on hot asphalt, concrete, or other surfaces if you couldn’t stand to walk barefoot on them too. Use the palm of your hand or the sole of your foot to test temperatures. If the ground feels hot, your dog needs protection.

Aside from strapping your pup in bulky shoes that make him walk like the neighborhood rodeo clown, how do you protect your dog’s paws?

PawTector is the sister product to Paw Soother, it’s made from all natural, organic and vegan ingredients, but it is more wax-based to provide additional protection against hot surfaces. The easy to apply balm glides over paws and protects against hot surfaces and harsh elements, as well as contact allergens such as grass or pollen.

Hot Dogs & Hot Paws! These Summer Essentials Can Protect Your Dog’s Paws

Hot dogs get hot paws, luckily there are some things you can do to protect your dog’s paws from the heat this summer. Did you know that even if the temperature is under 100 degrees F, asphalt surfaces can still reach well over 100 degrees F? It’s true, and it hurts your dog’s paws to walk across scorching hot surfaces. Your dog’s paws are naturally tough, but they are not designed to walk across man-made surfaces that heat up way faster than natural surfaces.

Can Dog Shoes Protect Hot Paws?

Dog shoes are one option to protect hot paws, but most dogs aren’t the biggest fans of shoes. It’s not uncommon to use dog shoes a few times, get a few chuckles out of them, and then forget about using them altogether. For one, it takes a lot of work to strap on 4 shoes every time you go outside with your dog. Secondly, most dogs don’t like wearing shoes.  If your dog is one of the few that enjoys prancing around in new kicks—by all means, go for it! But, if your dog prefers to go all natural, there’s a way easier option…

Hot Paws Need PawTection

Instead of strapping on bulky and expensive dog shoes, PawTection offers a less invasive way to protect your dog’s paws from hot surfaces. The all-natural organic and vegan balm glides over the bottom of your dog’s paws, providing protection made from a blend of herbal-based butters and special plant oils.

Each carefully selected ingredient plays a crucial role in nourishing your pup’s paws while guarding them against the elements. Your dog won’t even know he is wearing anything, and yet his paws will feel so pawesome.

PawTection is proven to protect your dog’s paws against:

  • Hot surfaces like sidewalks, asphalt, gravel, rocks, sand, concrete, stone, decks, and so forth
  • Cold surfaces like ice or snow
  • The effects of contact allergens like pollen, grass, or even mold
  • Harsh elements like deicers—which can cause serious complications without the proper precautions. If there are deicers on the streets, always clean your dog’s paws immediately after contact and before you both go inside. This helps prevent deicers from doing as much damage to paws. It also prevents your dog from licking toxic salts off their paws and getting sick.

Signs Your Dog’s Paws Are Damaged from Hot Surfaces

Dog paws should not be rough or dry to the touch. Dry or rough dog paws are the first sign of paw pad damage, often caused by walking on hot surfaces. A healthy paw pad is soft and sponge-like, allowing dogs to run around and maintain good grip.

Some other signs of paw damage you shouldn’t ignore:

  • Hot paws, if your dog’s paws are abnormally warm to the touch they might be irritated
  • Your dog is constantly licking or chewing at his paws—a common act for dog’s with damaged, irritated or burned paw pads
  • Your dog’s paws appear discolored
  • Paw pads are peeling or showing any other sign of surface damage

Damaged Paws Need Paw Soother

PawTection protects your dog’s paws against hot surfaces. Plus, the soothing all natural ingredients help heal pre-existing damages. Paw Soother, PawTection’s sister product, includes additional healing properties to further restore damaged paws.

Paw Soother is made from carefully selected ingredients intended to restore moisture, flexibility and grip. Paw Soother is gentle enough for your dog to eat without worry, but it’s still tough enough to combat a wide range of issues including heat damaged paws, hyperkeratosis of the paw, peeling and cracked paws, allergy-impacted paws, and more.

See firsthand the dramatic difference Paw Soother and PawTection can make, your pup is sure to thank you with some pawesome high-fives!

Help, My Dog Is Slipping On Floors! How To Provide Your Dog With Anti-Slip Traction

If your dog is slipping on floors on a regular basis, it can start to stress both you and your pup out. Forget the dog shoes and booties; there are easier ways to provide anti-slip traction for your dog. While the occasional slip might not cause much concern, and can even be a little comical, if your dog is slipping on a regular basis it presents the risk for serious injury.

It might sound crazy, but it’s not uncommon for dogs to require major surgery following an injury caused by simply slipping on slick floors. Even if your dog avoids major injury, enough slipping and sliding can make them fearful of walking on certain surfaces.

Is Your Dog Slipping On Floors? Here Are 4 Easy-Fix Solutions!


#1. Check For Dry Paw Pads If Your Dog Is Slipping On Floors

Dry paw pads are the most common cause for dogs having traction and slipping issues. When the skin is overly dry, it lacks the capability to grip and causes paws to slide across smooth surfaces. Think about when people are trying to count money or sift through papers…they will often lick their finger to get a better grip! Same concept, only dogs need a better long time solution.

Weathered paws healed with Paw Soother

Dry, chapped paws are a very common and largely ignored problem. Unprotected contact with pavement, snow, sand and many other surfaces can lead to the development of dry and cracked paws. Not only can this be uncomfortable for your dog, but also it causes your dog to lose grip and slip more easily.

Healthy paws are meant to be moisturized, flexible and almost spongy. This allows for their paws to get better and more secure contact with the surfaces they walk on. Paw Soother is the perfect, all-natural solution for moisturizing and healing paw pads. Within just a few applications you will notice a difference in the look and feel of your dog’s paws. As a result of healthier paws, your dog will enjoy better traction and grip, which ultimately means less slips. That’s why Paw Soother is the leading all-natural product specially formulated to treat some of the worst dry dog paws.

#2. All Natural PawTection Helps Prevent Dogs Slipping On Floors

dog-booties-slipping

I hate dis

Protecting the health of your dogs paws when heading out in in-climate weather or long walks is important. Direct and prolonged contact with harsh surfaces can really take a toll on the paw pads, causing them to dry out and crack. PawTection is an easy to apply organic, all natural and vegan balm that smoothly glides over dog paws to guard against damage and lock in moisture. Unlike cumbersome dog shoes and booties, dogs don’t even know they have anything on their feet.

PawTection is often utilized by professional dog trainers to aid in traction when using agility courses and training. The added moisture to the paws helps to provide an anti-slip barrier between your dog’s paws and flooring. Great for use around the house as well to allow your dog to gain better traction while cruising around. Licking of the product won’t be a worry with PawTection, as each ingredient is carefully selected for their effectiveness and safety.

#3. Clip Your Dog’s Nails and Toe Fur for Added Anti-Slip Traction

slipping-dog-paws

No surprise if these paws struggle with slipping!

Overgrown nails and/or toe fur can also contribute to a dog’s difficulty maintaining good contact with smooth surfaces and increased likelihood of slipping. You can help your dog gain more traction by simply trimming nails and fur around the feet.

#4. Keep Your Dog In Good Physical Shape and a Healthy Weight

If your dog is in good shape physically they are less likely to slip, fall and become injured. Make sure your dog gets regular exercise so that they have the mobility needed to stand up to slick floors. A physically fit dog goes hand-in-hand with weight management. Older dogs and overweight dogs are at a greater risk of slipping and suffering an injury.

#5. Non-Slip Floors For Dogsslipping-dog

If you have lots of dogs and/or older dogs, it might be worth investing in non-slip floor options. Instead of ripping out your current flooring, you could simply add large surface area rugs where your dog hangs out or plays the most. Be sure to secure rugs properly to avoid an entirely new form of slipping—yikes!
