Most dogs will chew their paws following an injury or it could be the allergic reaction to either pollen which is seasonal or following a sudden diet change which causes in many dogs to suffer a food allergy.
The best thing you can do is to make sure you eliminate all the possible causes for your dog to chewing his paw.
For a start, check his paws for any sign of injury no matter how superficial you may think it is.
Most dog injuries can result in internal infections even if it was only a small piece of wood that has embedded in between the dog’s paws.
While most dog cuts and bruises are ok to be treated at home, in many cases your dog may benefit from being seen by a vet if the cut was not dressed when he sustained it. Dogs who have an open wound are susceptible to getting infected, so you may need to take him to the vet for treatment.
By nature dogs are resilient, so If he has a foreign object embedded in his pads, gently remove the object and make sure that you immediately put an antiseptic on the wound and dressing it to keep the dog from excessive licking on the wounded area.
