I was wondering if there were anything you could make at home that you could spray on your dogs feet so they would quit chewing at them? She is about 2 years old and she is always chewing on her feet. If you know of anything that works or a spray you can make at home......basically anything please let me know.... also dont have alot of money so if you have to buy something please let me know how much it will be....
thanks alot

Usually... chewing on the feet is a sign of allergies.

What are you feeding her?

Something as simple as a food change may clear this up

I would definitely change her food. What you're feeding her now is nothing but fillers and by products. A good chance it's the cause of her problems.

What kinds of things is her sister allergic to?

Almost anything is better than Ol' Roy. Try Purina ONE first....maybe the lamb and rice formula or the sensitive skin formula, those can work for some dogs with allergies. I don't know if you can assume that she has the same allergies as her sister has, though.

Honestly, the allergy list you posted contains just about every ingredient found in dog foods. I'm not even sure you could design a homemade food that didn't have any of those things. And I'm not really sure if that kind of thing could be determined with a blood test anyway. I think your best bet would be to switch to a better quality food and hope that clears things up.
