Why Does My Dog Drag Its Back Paws?

dog-wound-bootAs your dog gets older, he or she unfortunately develop illnesses and other issues. It happens to all of us, unfortunately. One problem that sometimes happens to your senior doggie is that they sometimes drag their back paws, often causing the paws to bleed.

If your dog starts doing this, take them to the Vet for a checkup. Your dog could have a spinal problem, arthritis, or another issue. Your vet can help diagnose the problem.
