“Large numbers of pets and people die or become sick before their time despite the best efforts of healthcare professionals. In order to change this, there must be a realization that we are in a, ‘Medical Ice Age’.” – Dr. Alfred J. Plechner DVM

Dogs are some of the most incredible animals on earth, they love humans unconditionally, will happily obey our wishes and keep us company anytime we need it. However, at times they can be a little excessive at certain things like licking or chewing. If your dog has developed a habit of licking his paws or chewing the insides of his legs until they are raw then you have a problem that needs to be addressed. Let’s look at a couple of the different reasons they may be excessively licking their paws.

One of the first things that you’ll want to look for is if your dog seems to have a problem with ticks and fleas. There are certain types of ticks that like the warm dark space between your dogs toes, or paws. If you sit down under some bright light and check between all the toes, you might be surprised at how many ticks can fit in there hidden.

Having had a SARDS dog and knowing how devastating this catastrophic disease is, I try to help people stay informed by writing articles on the subject of SARDS (Sudden Aquired Retinal Degeneration Syndrome).

The sad fact is that more and more dogs are diagnosed with this disease while at the same time, most dog owners and even many Veterinarians know very little about the disease. I write various articles on the subject with the intent of helping people be more aware of this disease so if their beloved dog develops the disease, they will have a better understanding and know immediately, what actions to take.
