We installed a laminate floor 2 weeks ago, and now my dog is constantly chewing his feet and ankles.

    chewing at the feet and ankles is a sign of allergies, but i do not think it would be the laminate flooring, it could be what you use on the laminate floor it is allergic to. have you changed the food lately?? This sounds like a food allergy also.

    A dog can be allergic to anything, if you want to find out what he’s allergic to there is allergy testing. Bring him to the vet. I knew a dog that was allergic to grass and carpet.

    Yes, Most likely the coating is burning the aminals feet and the dog is trying to stop it. If you wash the floor with baby shampoo it mite remove this coatind and help the dog out, or not. But other types of cleaners mite make this problem worse, that why I said baby shampoo. GOOD LUCK!

    Anything is possible but it more likely what you use to clean the floor. A lot of the Swiffer like products are very hazardous to animals causing allergic reactions or even liver failure. I would suggest reading the labels on your cleaning products to see if that might be the culprit.
