Our dog is allergic to grass etc. and licks his feet a lot and sometimes they bleed. What would you suggest to stop him licking them and also protect his paws when outside?
Thanks for getting in touch.
To best way to stop your dog's allergy is to sooth the paw. Take a look at Dermagic Skin Rescue Lotion, this is easy to rub into your dog's paw and it is fantastic at stopping them biting their feet and calms the allergy down as they don't like the taste of the lotion! You will want to use a little lotion in the house to stop them licking their paws and then the use boots for outdoors.
For boots - the best boots for your dog would be our Walker Active Boots. They have good protection for the outdoors and are breathable. For sizing, measure your Westie's paw width.
Hi, Do you have anything to treat itchy back paws on my dog? He has been to the vet twice and was given liquid the first time and gel the second time. He now wears a comfort donut for bedtime to stop him causing himself damage.
The best first step is to top the itching, take a look at Dermagic Skin Rescue Lotion which comes in small bottles. Rub this into your dog's paw and it will rapidly calm the area down. Start with the small bottle and see how you get on.
We would also suggest a boot to protect the paw and to stop your dog instantly licking off the cream. For inside, our Walker Comfort Care Boots would be the best. They are soft and padded, with Velcro around the top so your dog can't bite or take off.

Organic whole-leaf aloe vera gel and vitamin E rush healing energy to the deepest layers of the skin, while sulphur, known as the healing mineral, reduces itching and flaking associated with seborrheic dermatitis and dandruff, is toxic to the scabies mite, and is both antibacterial and anti-fungal.
Rosemary essential oil disinfects and stimulates hair follicles.
Sesame oil, a natural antibacterial for common skin pathogens (such as staphylococcus and streptococcus), as well as common skin fungi (including yeast infections), is also a natural antiviral and anti-inflammatory agent.

Start with a clean dog. Trim long hair with scissors, but do not shave.
