my dog has suddently developed sores on her paws, she constantly bites on her feet, and i just recently noticed that they are all red and inflamed,I took her to have her toenails clipped a few weeks ago, at that time she was fine there was nothing wrong with her nails. Now they seem to be really infected.Has anyone ever had this kind of experience before? If so please respond.Now she seems to be experiencing digestive problems fron the constant bitting and licking of her feet.She also seems to be having heavy breathing and sneezes a lot constantly. She's 3 years old. please respond.

what kind of food is she eating? A lot of times a wheat allergy will manifest itself in the feet. It will cause them to chew their paws raw and they will smell faintly of Fritos.


The digestive issue could be from the food as well or it could be from stress from the itching.

Check the food, visit the vet and let us know what you find out.

Take her to the Vet and check for Blastomycosis

Fungal Infection (Blastomycosis) in Dogs | petMD

Everything you mention is in line with this problem. You DO NOT need to live within 400 yards of water as the article mentions. My dog Larry caught it and he lived his entire life away from a body of water and not near any of the things mentioned in the article.
