Worrisome Wednesday

I had my annual check-up at the 

I thought I'd passed wiv flying colours
(no heart mummer yet...Peeps held their breath while that test was on!)
Then the peeps told tails on me
About my paw licking

Can you see how red and sore I've made it?

The pads on my paws are really calloused and hard
So hard the central pad has SPLIT on both front paws!

Shouldn't Princess's have soft pink paws????

So I've been having lots of salt BAFFS in the sink
VERY undignified
Lots of paw balm rubbed in...which I LUFFS

So although I am joining the 
Wordless Wednesday bloghop
over at Comedy Plus

Any wordy answers wiv suggestions 
about my paw issue would be appreciated
(unless they include more undignified BAFFS!!!)

Loves and licky kisses

  1. Your poor paws must be so sore! I hope the salt baths and balm help them. I am glad that everything else in your visit was good.

  2. I have licked my feets raw before too, Leah. Mom puts a sock on me with the velcro stuffs at the top to hold it up. I have the Hairy Paw issue with my paws and wear Musher's Secret every single day before walkies. It's waxy and is the only thing that helps my paws stay reasonable soft.

  3. We have no suggestions, sweetie pies ... just wishing you some paws-up and happy feets soon!

  4. we hope your paws are super pawsome in some days... hugs and potp to you!

  5. Oh man, that sounds really painful! Do you have allergies or anxiety causing you to lick your paws into such a state? You really should quit licking them.

    OMD your Podiatriness, you need to talk with Bertie (and his Gail) about this. I know he has to get his paws washed lots - but maybe the cream will do its magic and the washing can become less? Sending healing vibes, hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  7. Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh No my dear little royal niece. Your princess paws are painful. Maybe if you are properly propped up on a non 'slippage' surface with your precious slippers elevated that would help. I'm so sorry sweet thing. I was about to suggest contacting Bertie/Gail but I see YAM-Aunty has mentioned that.
    Hugs from your Aunty Cecilia

  8. no advice from here, but lots of love and hugs and hope your paws are soft soon. I am thinking the Vet knows best... so keep on soaking those paws... you could suggest to your pawrents they CARRY you every where you go...BOL

  9. Oh, paw balm is so nice! Momma says that when Angel Cinderella licked her paws a lot, her vet said to bathe her paws in a water/apple cider vinegar mix.

  10. Ow ow ow ow ow! Theres nothing a spaniel likes less than having his or her feet messed with! Even gentle old Joey dog had to be muzzled when Miss Jacquie had to groom his feet! I hope your princess feet get better real fast. In the meantime, stay off the hot pavement, and take lots of naps.
    Love. Your faithful Chester

  11. I sure hope your soft Princess paw pads return soon sweetie!

  12. We're sorry to hear your paws are so sore. Our paws are crossed that the treatments help you real soon. It's no fun getting a paw bath.

  13. Perhaps you need to wear booties when you're out and about. Some pups will wear them and some won't. They sure protect your paws though.

    Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday, Princess Leah. My best to your mom. ♥

  14. Our Lucy enjoys going to the vet right up to the point we enter the exam room. However they have a few treats and she takes it all in stride.
    Sorry about the paw issues. That looks like it hurts, but I'm sure the right medicine and plenty of paw rubs with the balm will help. Booties might help once pup get used to the idea, however it will make for some hilarious photo ops the first few times.

  15. Hi Princess,
    I see a couple of my friends above have referred you to me, and they are correct that I have had lots of paw problems in the past. It took a visit to a specialist dermatologist in Glasgow to identify this issue and find the answer (any yes, the answer does involve a life time of paw washing, at least every other day, taking care to keep the cleft between the paw pads free of dirt and fur). I don't think your problem is the same as mine (which was interdigital cysts) but I will suggest it might be a good idea to seek out an appointment with a specialist rather than your regular vet. In our experience, the specialist really did a good job. He asked lots and lots of questions and clearly applied lots of knowledge and logical thought processes to the problem. For example, he noted that my paws are particularly dainty (i.e. compact) and also furry, and so prone to develop a dense mat of dirt and fur in the areas between the paw pads, which was the root cause of the interdigital cysts. None of the other vets had ever noticed this. Gail always used to wash my paws but it was only after this insight from the specialist that she started washing them in the right way. Again, as I said, you seem to have a different problem, but Gail and I do wonder if there might be something else going on that it takes someone who's seen a lots of problems paws in their time to notice and sort out.
    We do hope this helps. Sore paws are truly horrid and I never stop being grateful that we managed to resolve my issues - and without recourse to nasty and expensive medication too.
    Toodle pip!

  16. Oh Leah, your poor Princess paws! Arty also has to endure almost daily paw washing...but his paw problems stem from allergies...and that's a whole different tin of worms!

    Mmmmmmm....worms....Anyways, I hope your pawsies are better very soon!

  17. We have no answers, sweet Princess. Maybe some of the suggestions you have here will help. Mom says bag balm is good but messy:(

  18. Bad news about the baths. We wish we could come up with a great answer. A few blogs have mentioned good paw balm in the past, but we can't think of any. Maybe your peeps could just carry you around on a big Princess cushion until it they heal...

  19. Princess, we are happy it's just your paws. A little bath can be annoying sometimes but it will help. Thanks for the share. Hope some of the suggestions will help.

  20. Owewwwiee!! Poor Princess. I hope that heals quickly.

  21. So sorry your paws are bothering you. We hope that some of the suggestions here will be helpful

  22. We've got some paw balm da mommas has used on Finley - it does help.

  23. OH MY GOODNESS Princess! You poor little girl. I remember that you were licking your paws but I don't recall why. Do your mom and dad know? Or the Vet? XXX

  24. Mommy says it's a sign of allergies. Could check for food allergies by eating only stuff you've never eaten before. But whatever you do, don't let anyone give you steroid shots or apoquel.

  25. Oh my! I understand because I do the same sometime and my mom puts my winter booties on me to help "break the habit". I just wait until she's not looking and I start to lick all over again!
