Shar Pei’s often present licking and chewing at inflamed feet. The inflamation and itchiness can be very severe. Puss filled cysts can develop. The underlying causes are similar to those of ear and skin problems. The treatment may differ as it is only localised to the foot so topical treatments may be more appropriate.
Demodex mange and grass / pollen allergies are very commonly a factor. For details of causes and treatments please see our skin and ear problems pages.
