Hi Dr. Char. Sami has been on steroids since end of April. I was hoping to end them when finished with that. After two months and 3 shots of antibiotics. The vet said she needed to stay on prednizone and gave me enough pills for another 3 months. Sami doesn't hardly scratch (maybe twice since April) but still wants to lick and chew at her paws. Some people say they do this because of food allergy. I have her on Natural Balance Venison dry and canned food. Was told never heard of allergy to venison. Now wonder if it is because it is processed. Was on raw food, but terribly expensive and a nuisance. Am scared she will end up with Cushing's disease because of steroids or diabetes. Have read testimonials how steroids make stomach hard and drinks alot. My last dog got Cushing's at 10yrs. Pills are very expensive. She wasn't on steroids. Can you tell me if the licking feet is only caused by food allergy, if so I will go back to raw food again.
