The anatomy of the dog’s paw includes claws, followed by four pads, the larger metacarpal pad (forepaw) or metatarsal pad (rear paw) that is shaped like a heart, and a dew claw higher up on the foot in some breeds. Plenty of owners observe this common behavior in their dogs and wonder if they should be concerned. Allergic skin disease is the most common reason why canines lick and chew their feet on a chronic basis.
Many dogs who lick and chew their feet over long periods of time will also do so because it apparently feels good to them. However the licking, licking, licking all night long… biting, biting, biting until the skin is raw and bleeding, licking until the fur is a funky pink color, IS NOT NATURAL! This yeast is kept in check by a healthy immune system and by the healthy flora of the gut tract.

In some cases, dogs will gently but insistently lick one or both paws, but other canines will go so far as to chew on their toes, which can be disconcerting for any pet owner. In these cases, the feet (especially of light-colored dogs) will often look stained a pink or rusty color, which is the result of chronic contact with porphyrin pigments found in saliva. In these cases, vets look for an underlying nonbehavioral disease that may have initially triggered the obsessive behavior. Not only are they a great form of padding and traction for walking, but they also have direct correlation to the health and wellness of your pet. This yeast feeds on sugars or more precisely the carbs and grains that are converted to sugar by your body.
Sometimes it is part of a quick grooming ritual, but if the licking becomes constant, to the point of injury or sores, it could be a sign of something worse.

Or, if the foot licking problem starts out as a medical problem it can later become a compulsive habit, which will need to be corrected with training. Unfortunately, for our pets, those fillers are just plain garbage that their bodies do not know how to digest.
This is why it is important to pay attention to your pet’s feet and determine why a dog compulsively licks their paws.
