i don’t know if anyone still uses this app. i came across it at 6 am when i woke up in the middle of the night thinking about if my dog was okay. i saw other people’s posts from around 2010-2013, but i figured i’d see if anyone can help. for the past few days he was been biting at his paw. his paw pad looks red and i think there’s blood. i figured since it’s his paw and there’s a cut, i should clean it out. i have been putting peroxide on where the cut and irritation is to clean it out, then aloe vera. is this right? ive been trying to put a sock on his foot so he will stop, but he just bites it off. i haven’t brought his to a vet but should i? i figured it would go away but it’s not. this has been happening for a few days. i just want him to stop before he hurts himself even more. he’s had skin problems in the past, he just gets irritated. i hate seeing him this way. is there anything i could do to help? should i take him to a vet? why is my cockapoo biting his paw pad so much?
