I would make the appointment ASAP. Can you contact another vet office to see if they will take you right away? I wouldn’t wait to see if the problem will go away on its own, It could be something more serious and by waiting it could cause more damage. Good luck:)

I totally agree.  Make an appointment ASAP.

I would take him to the vet for sure.

Has he been running around a lot lately? I know that my dogs paws will get raw sometimes..but it always heals up in a couple of days.

I would make an appointment, better safe than sorry. And if you can’t get an appointment for a couple days, see how he does and if it gets better you can cancel.

I would take him to a vet just to be sure, especially if he cried out when you touched his nail. I would just show up at the vet. The worst they can do is make an appointment for you later on.

Paw licking can be an indication of allergies. I’m not sure what it’s like in your part of the country, but in Illinois the allergies are starting up already (for both dogs and humans!)

Last year was the first time my dogs were irritated by allergies and they licked their paws a lot to the point of them being pink and some of the fur thinning. We took them to the vet and got a spray that helps soothe the irritation. The vet also said we could give them a little bit of benedryl but we never did (please don’t give your dog benedryl unless your vet instructs you to, though). There are also steroids vets can prescribe but our dogs never got that bad and we’d prefer not to use steroids on them.

Hope this helps!

Personally, I’d give it a day if it doesn’t look like he’s in horrible pain and see what happens. Our cat had a fever last month- we tried to make an appointment but our clinic was booked. A day later she was back to normal. Saved us 150 bucks.
