The first round was when I adopted her. Her vet noticed her reddish discolored feet which the vet said was a sign of allergy problems. This discoloration occurs when Divinity licks her feet a lot.
Round one: Divinity had been fed a high-quality ocean fish diet which she enjoyed. Unfortunately, the ocean fish did not go well with her. I changed her diet and she improved rapidly.
Round two: This occurred about a year ago when she started having problems with one food she had been eating for more than a year. Again, I changed her food and she was fine.
Round three. Lately, I changed Divinity’s evening treat from a regular Greenies to Senior Greenies. I’ve noticed that once again Divinity has been licking her feet a lot and her feet have become reddish in color. During a visit to my local Chuck & Don’t pet store, I spoke with one of the sales people who mentioned that Senior Greenies have a lot of wheat in them. I stopped the Senior Greenies, her licking is subsiding, and her feet are beginning to look better.
The above picture of Divinity was taken by Anna, Divinity’s groomer before I adopted her. This picture was taken while Divinity was on her ocean fish diet, and you can see her red feet.
