Contact Allergy

Your Westie is going to step on things :) if there is something bad to step on, he will find it and step on it. Depending on what he steps on, his skin between the toes can get inflamed, and will irritate him.

This is where the itch starts, its so intense your Westie will want to lick it, or even bite it. The brown fur that comes later is not the problem, Westie's can suffer from contact allergies with simple things like floor detergents.

Carpets, grass and dust can all cause a contact allergy

Airborne allergens cause atopic dermatitis (or atopy) pollens and molds, Atopic dermatitis,  Plant pollens, dander, dust mites, and even smoke. While some of these allergens are seasonal, if your Westie is allergic to lots of different allergies the reactions may last the whole year, and you will see a variation on the licking and biting.
