The best remedy to stop a dog from licking & chewing his paws is to put him in the shower and spray-wash his paws after each walk. This has always worked for Galtee. Just wiping his paws off with a wet paper towel or wash-cloth wasn’t enough. All the contact chemicals, fertilizers, and pollens, from lawns and parks need to be washed off.
After our walks, I usually put Galtee in the shower and spray wash his paws with a little dog-shampoo. Then, I apply a conditioner and rinse it off with a solution of baking soda and water (1/4 cup of baking soda in a quart of warm water). To avoid problems with paw licking and chewing I now do this as a routine after our walks–no more problems–this remedy for paw licking and chewing works for Galtee!
