For the chewing/licking paws I give Benadryl, my research points to hayfever. I was concerned with my puppy's ears(golden retriever) and took him to the vet, they did swab and she said allergies and he was young to have them. Shortly after that visit I went and switched him from Fromm puppy to the Whitefish/ Sweet Potatoe and he has had no more issues with the ears. Then we had a dry skin issue, but a healthy shiny coat, an oatmeal and green tea leaf(for shampoo) bath did the trick there. Knock on wood all ears are good and no more itching. We get the occasional eye boogers,watery eyes, and licking of paws but the Benadryl clears it right up. I think the fish in the food helps a lot.
