Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Alright guys....first of all Delilah is pretty itchy...its in her back legs and paws...but she has her frontline e...could it be a food allergy?


Also, since her spay she keeps licking her vulva and that entire area. Is this normal? I'm just a horrible worry wart.

Advice please

Usually when dogs lick their paws it means that they have a pollen allergy, But it totally could be a food allergy as well. I would go to the vet and rule out one or the other. If an antihistamine doesnt work then you know its a food allergy.

Look for fleas anyway. I had Advantage on Siku, but took her to a place that, I didn't know, had fleas really bad. Eventhough she had flea meds on her, they still bit her. The easiest place to see them is under their back legs and on their belly. Also look for marks from the fleas bites. If not, it may be an allergy.

How long ago did she get spayed? Siku got spayed a week ago and she still licks that area too, but not a ton.
