Dog Chewing Paw Pad?

Answer

If your dog is chewing its paw pad, it most likely has an allergy. Atopic dermatitis is an allergy that resembles hay fever in humans, but in dogs it results in foot chewing rather than sneezing. Possible allergans can be pollen, insects, or dust mites. It is also possible that your dog has a flea allergy. Dogs with this allergy will chew their paws and tail area.
