Thanks! I was just reading something about yogurt. We have an apointment for his check-up on Wed, and I'll be sure to ask about it then, but in the mean time we'll try some yogurt. Thanks again.

Many times paw licking is a sign of food allergy. Usually wheat is the culprit.

Thanks for the replies everyone. Just an update, taking him to the vet tomorrow for his check up and we've been noticing he still licks his paw the most, but has been licking other parts of his body an aweful lot too. And when we are playing he rubs his ear on the floor alot.... Do you still think this could be a food allergy? Or do you think yeast infection?

So the vet said he has a yeast infection in his ear, but his paw seems to be fine. More than likely a nervous/anxiety related issue. Anyone have a dog that licks (or licked) their paw as a nervous reaction? What did you do to get him to stop? We've tried giving him toys or treats to deter him from doing this but he's not much for toys and treats. At night when we're all going to bed is when it's the worst, we can't exactly play with him or divert his attention until he forgets about it if we're trying to go to bed and have him go to bed....

trust me it is a allergic reaction to food that has wheat or soy or corn all Purnia and science diet is garbage food signs of food allergies are licking paws, ear infections, scratching also sometimes losing hair. I put my dogdown at 9 years old due to allergies my vet never told me to change my food . food to buy are wellness, solid gold, blue , taste of the wild, evo. yes they cost more but what is more important your money or your dogs life. do yourself a favor go google dogfood allergies and read what itsays

thanks, but we actually figured out what his problem was, about two weeks ago, his nail broke and a few small peices broke off. The vet said his nails were a little brittle, but we took him to the vet the other day for the rest of his shots and they said that his nails look a lot better. We think the nail was cracked and bothering him causing him to lick it alot. Since it broke he hasn't licked it once.
