Hi guys, i have a 5 year old staffy. Since he was around 3 years old, hes had sore paws (see picture) he licks at them all the time.
I've been to the vets multiple times and all they say is its allergies. I've had an allergy test and done the best I can, I bought him shoes for walking outside, I've tried almost every spray you can find on amazon.. nothing works.
My vet gave him some apoquel and said he would need to be on them forever basically. These tablets didn't do much at all.
My dog has got to the point where he won't let you near his feet, if you touch them he flinches to oull them away.
I even took him to a 2nd vet and they said allergies. I was pretty convinced it was a yeast infection of some sort but the vets aren't having it. It started on his front 2 paws, but recently his back ones have started to deteriorate.
I changed his food, hes now on a raw meat diet,im lost and out of ideas.
Has anyone seen anything like this, i feel so bad for him because sometimes they bleed and its really affecting his play time outside, as he ends up limping and oicking a paw up and crying.
