My dog is having paw issues, should I get it looked at?

She's a ten/eleven (it's within hours of her being 11 months old). beagle/terrier mix. About a week ago she started a habit of chewing on one of her paws and occasionally favoring it on walks. She will let me touch it but not do enough to find anything out. Should I get her looked at?

Absolutely. I don't know about the chewing but the favoring of the leg would mean a vet visit. It could be nothing, maybe some stiffness but worth checking out. Hope she feels better soon

@Mollyuu, I would get the vet to check to make sure she doesn't have any irritation on the paw itself. Sometimes when a paw is irritated from chewing or licking, it can hurt when they step down on it.

Could be nothing, but better safe than sorry.

Yes i would get it checked out. Chewing isnt the best but the fact that she is favoring it isnt good. I would bring her in. There could be something stuck between her toes or in her pad that she is trying to get out and hurts when she steps with that foot. I would bring her in to be safe then sorry.

Keep us updated.
