My malt on occasions licks her paws like a cat would do... just gently as if she were grooming herself. Well a few times and most recently today I found her in her bed with her face facing the wall as if she is hiding and she was biting her paws. When I picked her up all four were soaking wet. She's going to get groomed on Monday. I think her nails may be too long. Her paws are not red at all and she has zero tear stains so I don't think it's allergies. Any thoughts?
