Dear Vet Rx,
I have a white shihtsu-llhassa mixed breed dog about six years old. We have him for about a year and a half. He is always licking his front paws and they are turning a brownish orange color. What can cause that and how can I get him white again? Also what can I do to get him to stop licking them?
It sounds like your pet has an allery. If the condition is making your pet unconfortable you can try benadryl 25 mg 2x daily. If this does not work then your pet may need a dose of prednisone to get her through allergy season. If this problem is all year round then your pet may have a food allergy. talk to your vet about allergy testing. Thanks, vet carerx vet team
