Outsmart Fido’s foot fungus


If your pal is chewing on his paws and you notice a ‘wet dog’ smell near his feet, there may be fungus there. To get rid of the smell and ease his itching, try this vet-recommende­d Rx: Mix 2 Tbs. of povidone-iodine (available at drugstores) with 2 cups of water in a bowl, then dip your pup’s feet in one at a time. Soak for a minute; dry with a towel. The mix will nix the fungus so your pal (and you) can get some relief.
