My 10 month old Boston Terrier had blood drawn from the front paw today and since then he has been licking it a lot, which is a new behavior for him. I was googling and saw that this can start as a medical reaction and lead to OCD. How can I best nip this in the bud now?

Sometimes Hamish will lick one of his paws for a few minutes - if distracting him doesn't work we put a small sock on his paw.
We did find that licking would matt the fur on his paw, making him lick it more so sometimes I've needed to cut the matted fur off.

Put a tube sock over it and cut two slits in the sock's top and tie a knee high to his collar and loot thru the slits to hold the sock up. Should only need it for a couple of days.
