Dogs will start to lick their paws for the simple reason that their paws are irritated. Instinctively dogs will react to this irritation by licking their paws to an effort to rid themselves of the problem. If left untreated the areas can become red, swollen, inflamed, bald and infected to the point of starting lick granuloma which is a skin wound that develops as a result of excessive and chronic licking. It usually occurs in the paws and the front part of the lower legs.
Lick granuloma can happen to any dog; however it commonly occurs in middle-aged, large breed dogs, such as Labrador Retrievers, Great Danes or German Shepherds. Microorganisms thrive in the small gaps of the paws. That is why the development of bacterial, yeast and fungal infections are common.
All skin has bacteria, but if your dog’s immune system is already off balance, he can develop hypersensitivity to normal skin bacteria. This causes itching. Itching causes scratching, licking and chewing. This often spreads the infection and things go downhill from there. For the health of your dog action should be taken to help clean your dog of these irritants.
