McGinnis's paws are tinged with brown.
I think it's the Cairn in them

My girls paws are only usually brown tinged if they've been licking them (same with Kelsi and Hannah), and it's usually if their paws are a little yeasty so I bathe them in Malaseb and that seems to stop them.

My paws get brown because I love to dig in mulch in my back yard! My Mama is always cleaning me up. Love Caesar and Angel Murphy

I also used Malaseb and a last rinse at bath time of ACV (apple cider vinegar) on Emily as she had a habit of licking her feet.Her beard would also be tinged brown.

oes he l;ick his paws?

 It is from yeast Annie. Do you not remember that Levi also had a very brown mouth? Levi had it real bad around his mouth he is a big licker.

 I had to cut out all grains with his food and treats.  I buy Holistic food without grains in it.  I also started to give him Angel eyes a  very long time ago but that formula has changed the government stuck there noses in it .  Now they have natural tablets but that stuff does not work anymore so I no longer buy it.

I do have a tip for you from a vet but got to look for it and we have another 8 day holiday and than one more coming.

Will look for it Annie.

 Hugs and love,

Levi,Angel Moshe and Yoka

Our Maggie has brown feet, and yes she often has yeast issues and does lick her feet.


May try the Maleseb shampoo to see if that helps her.  Also, although she eats Fromm premium food, have not been giving them grain free varieties so may need to try that.

I had a foot licker. Molly used to love to lick at her feet. It was a soothing thing for her, she'd often do it as she was settling down for a nap.  No yeast issues with her, and yes she loved to dig in the dirt too - but I think the fur on her feet was perpetually stained from her licking.

My hunch is that it's a combination of genetics (predisposition to staining of the fur, or something in their saliva that stains fur), plus how much time they spend grooming their feet. She'd often get the brownish-red stains around her mouth and eyes too.
