I suppose you could do a mixture of apple cider vinegar, water, aloe vera and lavendar and rinse her feet with it. Maybe a 1:3 ratio of apple cider vinegar to water...

A really good foot spray (at least for her) is a mixture of witch hazel (I like Thayers because it's alcohol free, which can be too drying to the paws and pads), aloe vera jelly and a little bit of water...probably 3:1 witch hazel to water.
Shake it really good before spraying.
I also agree with Fransterdoo in going heavy on the fish oil. It really does wonders for keeping the skin nice and lubricated and keeping down inflammation. I give V as much as four times a maintenance dosage when her allergies are acting up, and it does make a difference.
