Caring for dog paws

If you notice your dog limping or chewing at their feet, it may be time for a closer inspection. This infographic takes a closer look at caring for dog paws. Firstly, we encourage all pet owners to regularly inspect their pet’s paws. This will give you an indication of the condition of their paw pads. Moreover, it also helps you to spot injuries, discolouration, and swelling of the pads or toes.

We also suggest watching your pet’s behaviour. This includes how they behave outside, and how often they chew or lick their feet. Your pet’s behaviour is an important indication of paw health and should not be brushed off.
