Below are a few reasons why your dog might be licking their paws:
- GI issues
- Hormonal imbalance
- Dry skin
- Fleas and ticks
While it’s normal for dogs to groom their paws every now and then, too much licking is often a sign of an underlying problem. Don’t let your dog’s paw-licking get out of hand.
Sometimes, it can become an addicting habit that is difficult to get rid of. Dogs who lick their paws excessively may also develop stains on the fur of their feet, and sometimes they may even develop red, swollen, or inflamed wounds that can be difficult to treat.
Excessive licking of the paws may warrant a trip to your veterinarian, as certain tests should be performed to rule out skin problems. You may also want to consider giving your dog CBD.
Just like humans, dogs have an endocannabinoid system. Many dog owners have found that using CBD has helped reduce the amount of licking and in some cases stop it entirely.
We still recommend taking your dog to a vet, but you may want to try CBD or ask your vet about using CBD. CTFO makes CBD especially for pets and they provide 3rd party certificates of analysis and 60-Day Money Back guarantees, so you know you are getting Pure Quality CBD.
