Degu: all of the fur has come off his paw, it doesn’t seem sore and he is still walking on it. Pet shop said it might be from where he has pulled his fur out but want a second opinion please without taking him to the vets and stressing him.

Looks like an allergic reaction to me — he is chewing the fur off his paws because they are itchy.  New bedding?  New diet?  Fleas?  I would review these things before going to the vet cause he/she will be asking you these same questions.
