Default Licking

Does anyone know why both my dogs are constantly licking their paws...
They are excessively licking and I'm just wondering if its a behavioral thing or if their is something else wrong...
Please let me know...Thank you

Paw licking is usually an obsessive/compulsive behaviour brought on by stress of some sort. Can you give us some more information? How long has it been going on? How old are your dogs, what kind, have there been any changes in their lives, etc.?

could be behavioral, but could also be allergy related (contact or food allergy). hard to say without any details tho.

Good point, Mordy. I hadn't really thought about allergies or food related. I've gotten spoiled, not having to worry about that kind of thing.

Bronki raised a granularloma ...vet said it could be caused by several things..an itchy nerve was why i think his did because he responded to the medicine and it quickly went away and never came back..but boredom..diet..allergy to carpet..all kinds of things can cause that.
