1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

PostSubject: Cut Paw Healing Time   Wed Jun 05, 2013 1:25 pm

So, I searched: cut, paw, pad, and wound, and couldn't find a topic on this. Hopefully, I'm not repeating anything.

So, Dizzy cut his paw on some glass on Monday night. We were actually outside the vet office waiting for an appointment for his shots, so the vet cleaned and bandaged it up and slathered some neosporin on it. Its a small cut, and not very deep, but deep enough to bleed, and the vet said he thought stitches would do more harm than good, so I opted not to do that. He is on antibiotics in case of infection. The vet was closed yesterday and today, and they said to call tomorrow to see when to bring him in to remove/redo the bandage. The problem is that when he walks, he kind of scrapes it on the sidewalk and its wearing through the outer wrapping. I ordered some no chew tape similar to the stuff the vet put on, but with a bitter taste to discourage chewing (hoping that would allow me to take the cone off) and got it today. What I want to know is, should I just tape over the bandaged the vet put on, or do you think it would be okay to redo the entire bandage myself? AND has anyone else dealt with a cut pad, and how long did it take to heal? Thanks!

I would redress the wound myself. But honestly I've never had a cut pad need to be dressed for more than two days. They heal pretty quickly, well, enough that they don't bleed anyway. I've only ever kept the cut pad wrapped the first and second day. Beyond that I let nature take it's course so long as it's not bleeding.

Great! Thank you. I'm going to unwrap it tonight and see what it looks like, maybe I won't even need to redo the bandage at all. I might just grab a little bootie for him to wear outside if I'm worried about it. The only thing that concerns me is that I have to have him on concrete all the time as I'm in the city. I'll take off the dressing tonight and update in case anyone wants to know later on. Smile

Maybe keep his walking amount on concrete limited the first few times if that's even possible. Besides, I'm sure the pad being able to breathe will aid in recovery.

I just went through something like this with loki, He got a splinter at some point and it healed over but infected within his foot pad, so they cut it open, cleaned it out and lanced it. Bandage stayed on for 2 days, we bought a bag that covers it for going outside so it didnt get dirty or wear out. bandages stayed off after the two days, and he was right back to normal, it is peeling a little bit now, I just keep an eye on it. If it hurts him hes usually pretty smart about not running around or jumping. But it seems hes all fine and its been a week.

So I took the bandage off last night and its fine. I can see where the cut was, but it has healed mostly. Still checking it and keeping it clean though.
