Chewing her nails?

Lately Molly has been chewing her nail almost obsessively. She started this about 2 weeks ago and its driving me nuts. Has anyone come across this problem before

Cass will chew on her front nails, but rarely. We've only noticed it a few times.

You might want to check in between her toes/nails to make sure everything looks ok. It could be itching or some kind of sensetivitiy starting.

A lot of dogs will chew their feet due to allergies. They will also do it if they have pemphigus.

My Chihuahua mix used to do that.. Not only chew her toenails, she would actually bite them so they were ragged, something like a human with a nail-biting habit... Strange behavior and I don't know why and she never really stopped... :-/
