Red and inflammed skin between paw pads
Cooper has been scratching like crazy for the past month. No food changes, so i assumed the cold, dry air has been causing it. I started giving him 1000mg of fish oil every day about 2 weeks ago, which hasn't seemed to help much.
Now in the past couple days he's been licking his paws. I looked today and found that the skin in between his pads on one of his front paws is really irritated and raw looking. He comes in contact with road/sidewalk salt every time we go on a walk, so i'm sure that's not helping either.
How should i go about taking care of this? I'm at the point now where i might just make a vet appt because the scratching and licking is driving me nuts!
