    I bought the contraption online that has garter like things for the socks to keep them on, for dogs who chew their feet. But I am so scared to use them at night when he's in his crate, in case he chews the elastic and gets sick. I tried the socks one night and they were off the next morning of course. Mr. D won't stop licking whenever someone isn't around. All his feet are pink between the toes and I am at my wit's end. NOTHING has worked to end this, antihistamines, antibiotics, neo predef, salve I bought online (which I just used once as it's petroleum based and I'm worried it's going to start yeast or worse) I see people recommend bitter apple but I forsee an allergic reaction to that junk. This all started after a few nights at the kennel. He came home with red/raw feet in July and we just can't get a handle on it now, though it improved a bit after the meds. He also kicks like crazy whenever he goes to the bathroom so that's can't help either. Any ideas guys? He gets bathed every 2 weeks or so. I spray his feet daily with an anti bacteria/yeast spray.
    ETA He's been allergy tested - the food he eats supposedly has nothing in it he's allergic to. I also give him snip tip oils every night in his food.

    Hi I just saw this now. The one thing that stands out in your post is the fact that you noticed it when he came back from the kennel and you hit the nail on the head. Now dublin does lick and chew her feet because of allergies but she had a major episode when we took her to NY when taking my son to college. she was amazing on the trip and had to stay with us in numerous "strange" places. We left her with my brother and sister in law on Long Island ( just for a few hours) while we went into the city. When we got back, she was beside herself. She had chewed and licked her paws until they were red and literally dripping in spit and drool. It struck me there and then she was doing that out of anxiety. Poor baby thought we had left her as we never do other than at home. it has taken weeks for her to back off quite a bit from the licking and chewing but once she does it is furious.. If you met her you would be struck by how sweet, laidback and quiet she is. She keeps it all in and boom! the anxiety comes out like it did when we left her that time. I spoke to the vet about it and of course he said there are many reasons that dog lick and chew and anxiety and boredom are two of them. How is Mr. D today???? I have used the Bitter Apple and it works for a lot of things and is very safe, but if Mr. D is doing it for a psychological reason you have to work on distracting him when you see him do it. Let me know how it is going. Ann

    Thanks @Dubbiedog, they are looking a lot better today! I only used the dermapaw once but didn't see results. Seems maybe his bath Sunday helped some...I used a lot of masaleb shampoo on the paws. @loveabully you got good results from dermapaw? How often did you use it?

    oh an apple cider vinegar worked the best for yeast infection for my new puppy Franklin I'm almost positive that if I knew then what I know now I think Diesol would be alive I'm just glad I found this site when I got my first English bulldog
