I'm a newbie and I need to know if this is normal. Mushu licks his private area AND his paws practically all the time! Is that normal? Should I spray chew stop on it to stop him?

licking his paws sounds alot like an allergy but not sure about the private area, I would run him to the vet

Yes I would take him to the vet as he could have an infection that is irritating him in his private area. Scooby licks his paws off and on but I have noticed it more after his grooming session when he has his claws trimmed mostly and it is usually his back ones.

Abbey licks her paws after she's been outside to potty. The vet doesn't think it's allergies. Abbey is just alittle miss priss ~ she hates to be dirty!
Check with your vet next time you're there though. I think Abbey is just a licker! She licks us constantly even though I try to keep her from licking me (I can't stand it). Let us know what the vet says.
