    I know! It's driving me crazy! I give him a benedryl. Another trick I learned from my new vew....Dissolve 3 tbsps of back soda in a quart(4 cups) of water. Rinse his feet, or wherever, with a washcloth dipped in the water. He said the water dries and the backing soda coats and soothes the skin. It does help. Not a miracle cure but def helps some!

    Vegas is driving us nuts right now too with his OCD licking. I wash his feet with witch-hazel and he just licks that off too. I too use Benadryl or Zyrtec. I know he is nuts itching, but it drives me nuts hearing it.

    @bubbasapig That's interesting because I was going to give him a footbath with Johnson's foot soak which I think has baking soda in it ...thanks

    @KMARINO I feel your pain..I too know his feet ate itchy but c'mon after an hour you'd think that tongue needs a break.

    Warm water and epsom salt.... also wipe their paws when they come in from being outside.

    That is when Vegas goes nuts @2BullyMama, only when he gets in from outside, it is not a food allergy, it is strictly pollen/grass related. I do wipe his feet off and he licks the witch-hazel off.

    Yep -- Banks too.... that is why I do the warm water epsom salt soaks - especially in the spring/fall months --- and when the grass has been cut

    Hello ... I'm pretty damn close to you ... Grafton (nr Elyria)!!! We've had a pretty wierd winter huh???!!!

    So far all my bullys seem ok with the seasonal allergies, although Linus is too young to really know yet. However, my black lab mix ... Bear ... always suffers and will chew at his feet until they bleed. That usually lets up over the winter months because whatever he is allergic to dies off with the frost. Not this year!!!

    The best advice I have ever been given is to keep a whole box of sensitive baby wipes by the door and grap and wipe as they come in!!! Somebody also mentioned about using the Lysterine gold mouth wash once a week. It was recommended for interdigital cysts, but also to help with this kind of thing too!!!
