NEW YORK - Dr. Jerry Klein is the Chief Veterinary Officer of the American Kennel Club and has nearly 40 years of experience in the veterinary field.
FOX 5 News went to Dr. Klein with common questions from dog owners, and here’s what he told us about dogs licking their paws.
He says a dog can lick its paws for a lot of different reasons. If it licks only one paw, it could be because there’s something in its paw, like a splinter, and it’s trying to make it heal.
But if it’s licking all its paws, look for internal causes, like maybe a food sensitivity. So you should talk to your vet.
