|She hates her boots. :(|
As you can tell, Zoe is not very impressed with me! Poor Zoe is having her feet problems again. It's been nonstop raining and during the rainy season she gets this weird contact allergy thing in between her pads and sometimes between her toes. Her feet do not like wet grass at all.
This year I tried an experiment with benadryl and keeping her mostly to the dirt for potty walks but because she's such a princess about where she goes potty, that plan didn't really work out. Even with drying them thoroughly with a towel every time she comes in and washing them with anti-bacterial soap once a day, the infection happened anyways.
This is what her paw currently looks like. She also has a second infection in one of her back paws, too. I've been treating her 3x a day with her special spray from the vet. The photo above is actually pretty mild from what I've seen them do in the past. We've been keeping a very close eye on her and making sure she does not lick them. She's been pretty unhappy about that, too because she would prefer to spend her day in the bedroom.
I can't really win with her. She hates her boots but her paws hate the grass. I feel so bad about all of this. Boots it is until the rain takes a break! Poor thing.
Does your dog have contact allergies?
