Alergies NEW
by: Terry

Been there done that....my first Springer chewed her paws hairless, fur was always pinkish red from the saliva around her mouth and her paws-- wven a white fuzzy had at stain. She was alergic to over 250 things from ants to wool to grass. Corn was a real biggie, we had to find a non corn based food and that helped. I gave her weekly shots and finally the vet found a people med that helped but I can't recall what it was called--I know it was expensive and I had to get it by percription from the pharmacy.
Don't give up on your pup even itchy they are so worth it.

Check there is nothing in there..........caught in the fur; no matter how small they will chew to get it out.
I often soak my spaniels paws in warm water with a little salt to draw anything that might be there.
Failing that...........vets

alergies NEW
by: Bette

We had this trouble with Harley our springer. He has alergies. He only has trouble in the fall and the first real frost takes care of it. I have to give him benadryl. If I dont he chews his back paws until they are swollen and raw. The vet said we could have him tested to see just what it is causing his alergies but the test our very exspensive

Chewing NEW
by: Chl

It sounds like allergies to something. My dog did the same before I changed her food. Her skin was pink and sore. So take all the tinned food away and getting wheat dairy and gluten free helps a lot. Also feeding her raw mi fed meat with veg and rice. No more scratching or chewing. That's not to say your dogs issue is food but it's an easy one to start with.

Could be allergies to food or grass. We have our vet give our Springer Ruby shots every so often.
