Here’s Why Dogs Constantly Lick Their Paws and What You Can Do About It

Paw licking is a normal part of a dog’s self-grooming process. However, it can be a problem if your pet does it too frequently and with more intensity. If this happens with your dog, you’ll want to take him to a trusted veterinarian near you and have him checked for injuries or any other problems.

It can be quite alarming when our pets vomit or have diarrhea. There are many possible causes for vomiting and diarrhea, ranging from something as simple as a hairball in cats to bacteria, viruses, and parasites.

Even if you feel the issue isn’t serious, you should always contact your vet and let them know what’s going on, so they are better prepared to work with your furry family member if it does become more serious.

Limping and Lameness in Dogs

4.11.2022 0 comment

When your dog suddenly starts limping noticeably, it's important that you call us right away to schedule an appointment. Because dogs are good at compensating for low-grade chronic pain, you may not become aware of the limping until the underlying condition has progressed to a more acutely painful stage. Serious limping and lameness indicates an animal in real distress, and we need to determine what's creating it and alleviate the discomfort. Contrary to popular belief, pets rarely cry when in pain. The most common signs of pain in pets are limping or stiffness, decreased energy/activity, decreased social behavior, and decreased appetite. Shaking, aggression, and excessive licking or scratching of a specific area are other common signs.
