    My 2 year old, chihuahua/Yorkshire terrier cross, has been chewing the fur off his feet. He has really pink skin on his belly and all down his legs. He chews the fur off his paws until there's nothing left but skin. I will be taking him to the vet, he has an appointment booked in the next couple days.

    Could this be a health issue, or maybe just a bad habit?
    Thanks.
