My 1 year old French bulldog has red itchy paws. I first noticed him chewing his paws two weeks ago. I could not see anything on his paws so thought he'd been watching the cat too much and is just copying her. He started to chew his paws a lot more frequently so I checked them out again. In-between a few of his toes there is red inflamed skin. One of his paws looks really alarming as its extremely red underneath and has dry blood around it. He chews all of his paws intensely so its obviously bothering him. I am going to take him to the vet next week as that is the only time I could get an appointment. Does anyone know what this could be or have seen something similar? Is it urgent? Shall I call for an emergency appointment? Is there anything I can do to sooth them until we get to the vets?
