Licking at Paws

November 14, 2013, 11:23 PM
Q: My Teacup Yorkie is always licking his paws. Is this something I should be concerned about?
A: Your question needs some clarification in order to give you a specific answer. Does this involve more than one paw, is there particular times that he does it more, does the skin on the paw look normal? Another situation I have seen is when people use carpet treatments for freshening or insect control. Also, does he go outside and what type of surface is outside? If you can give me a little more information I will try to give you a more accurate answer.
