My little 15 year old Yorkie is constantly itching himself and biting his paws tilll they bleed. He also suffers from very dry skin. He has a heart problem and the itching seems worse since he went on heart tablets. He has got steroid injections but I dont like him getting these as they will affect h is organs I feed him only on lamb and rice. I feel so sorry for him. I have given him Piriton antihistimones a quarter a day and they havent helped. The trouble is is I rub oil into his paws he licks it off. Appreciate help as I am at my wits end. Even though he is 15 he is well able to go for a walk and he does have arthritis in his paws. I just havent the heart to have him put to sleep yet as he is fine otherwise. Mary .
