Hello!

I'm so glad I found this forum!! My baby girl Bella is about 1 1/2 years old. I have her on Orejin Fish Formula and she LOVES it!! However, she has been licking her paws a lot more, and rubbing her ears/eyes. I don't know if it's the season ( I live in Colorado and I've dusted off a lot of pollen of the furniture) or the food. It's grain free...not potato free. I've done SO much research on food and don't know what to give her. She is also a little chubby...I'm a sucker for those big eyes!! Any suggestions?! Thank you!

My Chuckaboo has been licking his paws alot too. Everytime he comes in from the outside he licks his paws, I always thought he was just cleaning himself LOL.

Maybe you could try switching to another Orijen flavor, or Acana? It is the same company, just a little lower protien.

Hi there and welcome.
It could be the food, or allergies, could even be the anal glands.
I have heard sometimes they can lick or bite at themselves if they need emptied.
First i would see if it is the food though.

I feed Acana because of the lower protein, my 3 love it!
