My 16 month old , spayed, schnauzer/poodle cross has recently been licking / chewing at her paws/claws and is licking her bottom a lot.

She seems fine in herself, eating well etc.

Any ideas why?

I hope someone comes along soon with great advice.

Am taking my dog to the vet on Monday for the same thing!

Mine chews at his bottom when his anal glands are compacted. With yours chewing at paws as well maybe she's got an allergy to something.

Mine chews her paws to shreds when she has an allergy flare up. We've tried (and the vet has tried) umpteen stuff - but this is so far the only stuff that's really had any good effect (steroids worked a bit but had such a bad effect on her she dropped 2kg in weight in a week wish I fecking could drop 2kg in a week mind ) (Amazon do it on prime if you're impatient) and it's really working if I pop it on the second the jaws go towards the paws it stops her! We've previously had absolutely months of her in toddler socks, muzzled to stop her going at it, blood all over the upholstery from shredding the pads and it's just been a nightmare.

Mine does this and it drives me mad! It’s allergies in his case, and we find ‘stinky stuff’ has been absolutely amazing! It’s grown his hair back, taken the redness out and stopped him licking/nibbling. Well worth a try.

Could be anal glands or fleas. They don't always lick the actual source of discomfort.
