Blisters on paw.

Good evening, I have a female pit bull/boxer and recently she's been having some troubles with her paws. Could anyone tell me why she keeps getting blisters on her paws between her toes? Thank you.

Since it started recently...

How old is she? Has she experienced winter before? Has it snowed in your area? If so, is it possible she has walked through salt used for melting snow? Have these blisters, then, appeared after such a walk?

Not a vet... just some food for thought. Some salts are deemed safe for dog paws, but even then I've walked a few whose paws are sensitive and burn or get blistered from it.

If your dogs paws are reacting to weather conditions (either hot or cold), then I would recommend musher's secret. I have not used it yet myself, but have heard lots of good stuff about it.

She's 4, she's seen 4 winters, loves the snow. This has never happened before, not even after walking her. I don't think it's the salt because we've always used the same salt, unless they changed something in it or she's getting new allergies.

Your best option then would be to see a vet. No one can conclusively tell you what it is. If it is an new allergy you need to know that.
