• My shih tzu front paws seems to be red all the time now and doesn’t seem to bother her. I walk her twice daily and always clean her feet. Should I b concerned or take to the doctor?

    Hi Vanessa,
    I recommend that you take her into see a veterinarian. Red paws like you are describing can be caused by many different things including infection, allergies, inflammation, or an another underlying medical issue. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause of her symptoms and the treatment she needs after they have examined her.

Need more information or advice?
