Cobi is my 7 year old beagle. AND it appears that he was feeling left out with all the attention that Casie was getting being sick. SO, he developed a very raw, bright red skin thing between his two middle toes. It's rather slimy but no white pasty stuff. The vet said, cortizone creme, benedryl and soaking his paw in epson salts and warm water (the latter is going to be a trick, as he hates water) He is a paw licker, and we have sour orange and sour apple spray to keep him from licking front paws, but NEVER thought about his back ones. Any ideas, short of socks and boots (which he ate off earlier) to help keep his foot dry and heal him up.

when you have two, you have twice the love and twice the trouble. :eek:)

Awww, poor Cobi (and just what you need after Casie's recent drama). When we first adopted Moose he went through two episodes of obsessively licking a paw raw... the first time it was a front paw and after we had tried a few things we ended up just putting a cone on him and that did the trick. The second time it was a back paw, and even with the big size cone he could still manage to get to the paw so that wasn't the solution. We therefore tried absolutely everything else we could think of to try to get him to stop, but the only thing that eventually worked were these dog boots called Muttlucks that velcroed on. He couldn't get them off no matter how he tried. Not sure if those are what Cobi has already chewed through, but if not they are definitely worth a try!
