    Two regular benadryl? Is it not too much for him? I'll start wiping his paws as well. I hope it passes soon!

You can go to the web site to see the spray. wwwhenryscheinvet.com Elmo weighed 59.4lbs. Dr. Weaver wants Elmo to loose 5lbs. Hope the info. on the spray helps you, call your Vet and ask him or her about this.
    Thanks for the advice!

    Ruckus does that sometimes and wiping his paws down with a baby wipe when he comes in from playing in the grass really helps.

    Brutus does the same thing. I give Benedryl if it is really bad but I also give him 1 allegra allergy pill a day. This keeps him nice and even. I do notice also that when Bru is really tired he will lick his paws right before he goes to sleep. I would do the allegra though. Ever since I started it he has not had wet eyes or been licking.

    He may be allergic to grass! Matilda has this issue too, and it turned out to be a grass allergy. I decided to make her a "litter box" to use instead of the grass and her feet instantly cleared up and she stopped biting them!

    @fastmatt613 my Rocco dose the same. He would lick and then start bitting.he ended up creating hotspots I lost a little bit hair not much. My vet said its allergies. I clean his paws when he comes in from outside. I give zyrtec once a day also I spray "Relief" on him.

Nothing has changed for him still eating the same fromms as always and filtered water. Anybody have any experience with this or know what would cause him to do this? Thanks in advance!

    Your dog could have interdigital cysts. I've had two bullies with this problem.

    Nice to "see" you @fastmatt613 Yes, it is usually allergies when paw licking. This years is especially bad for everyone's allergies! I, too
    have had to give Benedryl. Walmart brand is the same, and cheaper.

    Yea it is crazy. Now he is only 11 months but this is the first time he has done this. IHe never had a problem walking on the grass before. Plus he loves it, so I hope he is not allergic. I try to only give the benadryl like 2-3 times a week, I don't wanna drug him up too much lol. But sometimes he can wake me up from how loud he is slobbering over those paws. I hope this dog allergy season ends soon!
