Q. Hi my dog he is a four yr old toy poodle and he has blisters on his feet and always keep bitting on his paws and constantly licks it ...is it serious

Answered By

A. This may be down to an adverse reaction to certain ingredients in his food, eating too fast or a gastric ph issue. I recommend changing his diet to an easy to digest or hydrolyzed diet for 8 weeks as long as there is no weight loss alongside the vomiting. A slow feeder or feeding off the floor or a plate if he is inclined to eat his food quickly out of a bowl can also help
