When we leave our Akita Inu alone for longer than an hour he starts to excessively lick his front left paw. It becomes so bad that his whole left leg will be soaked with saliva. It is now getting so bad that he has started to discolour his fur. The white on the paws is now a pinkish hue and when wet itâ€™s almost red. Not sure what we can do to fix this. He only licks his left paw. He doesnâ€™t really lick himself when weâ€™re around, other than some minor cleaning. Heâ€™s only 14 months old and weâ€™ve been crating him for 7 months because he started ruining content of our home when left out of the crate. Any help would be awesome. Havenâ€™t found too much on the internet.
