    Are you considering adding a dog or cat to your family? Your local shelter or rescue group is a great place to start. There are millions of animals in U.S. shelters waiting for a good home.

    Dog Licking Paws

    My dog did the same thing and I was told its allergies. They told me to get some baby wipes and clean her paws through out the day. I did and she stopped the paw licking. It's worth a try for you and your best friend and a long way from $500. Good luck.
