    Defaultpaw licking?

    Bogey has been licking his paw since about 4 thismorning. Ive looked as good as I can I dont see anything or feel anything. Hes not limping on it ether. Nothing has changed as far as food or anything. What could make him do this?

    Where are you at? Weather? Salt on roads for snow? Could she have picked some up.

    We have snow but we dont use salt because of that. When we left class yesterday they were salting the parking lot but I made sure we walked around it to avoid it. I just now stuck him in the tub to rinse them off. Is that enough or should I do something else?

    IF it was salt, that should be enough. There are so many other possibilities,from food, to something else walked on, ideas that someone else may have more info about.

    No I dont think he has been, but one toe rightaround the nail looks a bit red could it be from the licking? or is it more serous?
