Beau is almost 2 years old. Ever since I got him when he was 8wks he has always chewed on his feet. I thought this was just something he did and never worried about it.
However, over the past several months he has been itching and chewing on himself like crazy. It almost never stops, not even at night. We have tried switching his food several times and it always seems to help some or for a little while and then the itching and scratching progressively gets worse again. Has anyone else had this issue??? If so, any suggestions. Beau is miserable with all the scratching and it's making some of his hair come out bc it's so constant.

Try taking him to the vet it could just be fleas or he could have a nervous habit of natural anxiety or something along those lines. As for his feet sometimes it helps to get something from the vet that you can either keep on his feet to stop him from chewing or some kind of cream or something that you can put on his feet that tastes bad to dogs so he won't do it. Make sure it's from the vet because he will know what is safe to put on your dogs paws without harming him.
