Murphy does not like wet grass.
We dry his paws when he comes in from outside but in the winter months (it rains a lot here) he bites and chews and "worries" at them.
He will bite off pieces of his pads and then he limps around for days.
I've tried socks, lotions, tensor wraps and nothing seems to work for very long.
When it's really bad and we can't correct him we have to put the cone on.
He doesn't like it but he does tolerate it quite well.
