I have a 144lb male who is 2 years old, I am on a farm and he is with 2 other rotts, he licks the bottoms of his feet a lot. Is there anything I can do for him. We take them all to the vett and feed them well using lam and rice from sams store. They catch a lot of animals on the farm and sometimes eats them. My name is Bob Medlin. Thank you for your time.

Rottweilers can be sensitive on their feet. Possibly stones or salt is causing some skin agitation. ask your vet for special lotion to rub on their pads :)

My rot had the same issue, except i live in a rather large city in an apartment. What the issue was, was a yeast proliferation...not infection. Yeast would grow in between her paws pads because of our rather damp 'backyard'. Anyway, the vet just gave me a anti-bacterial solution and I had to flush the paw she licked a lot every morning and night. Also, I had to keep it dry as possible. Fixed her up in a matter of days. Keep her paws as dry as you can for a while, and flush them with the solution (only like 7 bucks, I'm in toronto, might be less expensive everywhere else in north america).
