Scooter has become obsessed with licking the inside of his front paw pads to the point where there is redness. I took him to the vet and she of course said "allergies" and prescribed medication. The pills arent working and he seems to not be his regular obnoxious happy self and his appetite has increased. I free feed his hard food but he seems to always be at his food bowls since taking the medication to the point I now have to pick up the bowl of food early in the evening. I put him in the tub and washed his paws with warm water, thought shampoo might bother his paws since they are already red and that seemed to help, any one have any ideas what I can use to wash his paws with that might help? I used a little of hydrogene perioxide but not alot.
