    My bully is constantly licking his left paw. Not sure what is going on, but when i look at his bedding in his cage it's dark and kinda look like blood but when i check all of his paws they look pretty normal? why is he doing this? he seems to never stop..suggestions?

    Can't say what it us but cutty licks at night and same thing. Comes off on the blankets red. Usually allergies r a sign of crazy licking but with him, he does it at night before bed for no reason.

    Hi there. My Wilson does this quite often and more so right after the grass has been mowed. He will chew it until it bleeds too and causes a sore wound. King is most like itchy to due an allergy sensitivity of some sort. I had Wilson allergy tested so I know what he's allergic too and it sure has helped with the guessing game.

    Here's what I do for Wilson that works wonderfully for him.

    1. Get a wash cloth and wash his paw down thoroughly.
    2. Dry it well.
    3. Use some cornstartch (my preference) and rub some inbetween his toes and on the underside of his pad.

    4. If they're all bad, I take Wilson to the bathtub and wash his feet.

    Works like a charm!! He was licking bad on his front foot and I did steps 1-3, again, and walla, licking stopped.

    Hope that helps.

    I would think this has something to do with allergies. Brutus used to lick his paws all the time and then we got him on a different better food and he stopped licking. Every so often he will but not as bad as before..It could be enviromental/food allergy...

    @nmejia024 Like others said, it could be a sign of allergies. I believe it is, for my Bruin. He does it after he comes in from doing his business. Is he only licking while he's on his bed? If so, maybe its the detergent or spray that you use for his bedding.

    Im not Sandra but Yes,,, yeast was the first thing that I thought of. Or, allergies which are related. Washing his feet may help, antihistamine may help, different food may help, ????? Its very common.

    definitly take to the vet, they can see things or xray that we can miss. Defintely something going on, either itching or pain. Good luck and let us know what is discovered.

    Echoing everyone else - it could be yeast or allergies. You're best bet is to go to the vet and get it sorted out sooner rather than later.
