Lhasa Apso Questions

A Visitor asked the following question on 10/25/2004
i have two Lhasas, on different diets, and both have problems with itchy paw pads....the older dog has more severe problems than the younger one. A cortisone spray seems to help but I'd like to get to the root of the problem.

2/19/05 This could be a number of things causing the itching. It may just be the diet. Sometimes Lhasas can not handle some of the commercial foods that are out there. A great brand to try if your dogs have allergies is California Natural you can access there website at http://www.naturapet.com at this website you can find a distributor in your area. I swear by this product it is amazing very high quality food. It could also be that you apso has a baterial infection in its paws. Taking your Apso to the vet and asking about a the bacterial growth will give the vet the right direction into solving the problem. Dea

4/27/06 Some dogs begin chewing the feet as youngsters with 'growing pains'. This can become an obsessive-compulsive behavior that just keeps on going. Contact allergies (grass, mold, etc) can also be contributing factors...do not breed ANY dogs exhibiting allergic symptoms (which may not appear until after 2 years of age!).Make sure your boys have plenty of exercise and other things to chew, in addition to vet consults.Any OCD problems can become worse if given the wrong type of attention (yelling, nagging, petting).
