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: Top layer chunk missing from front paw pad?    Sun Jun 30, 2013 10:50 am

So I check my dogs pads like every day just to make sure I dont miss if they are ever hurt and today I found a chunk missing out of his front paw pad. He doesnt ever run on cement or on ant hot surfaces so I have no idea how this happened and where its sunday and he isnt limping on it so I figure I will wait to call the vet tomorrow. We use mushers secret on them as well just not booties. What should I do to help the healing and how serious is this? Also sorry f or any errors I am on my phone!

This exact thing happened a couple weeks ago to Bode and I was bewildered why it happened. A few people on here told me to put Vitamin E or Neosporin on it and Musher's Secret or similar on top. It healed pretty quick and never seemed to bother Bode one bit!

Okay. That makes me feel a lot better, i was kind of worried cause its never happened before. Sorry if this is a repeat thread too. I searched some words but nothing came up. Did you cover it up with anything or just put the stuff on and leave it?

I didn't cover it, but it wouldn't hurt if your pup seems to want to chew or lick at it.

He should be fine if you keep it clean and use the stuff mentioned. Could a pricker of some kind get stuck in the pad and he chewed it out? That happened with jack in the past.

Maybe.. Come to think of it he did kind of jump on a walk the other day, but I thought it was his back paw that he might of stepped on something and maybe now the chunk is just noticeable and I didn't look in the right spot. Do you think a bee sting could do that to their paws or no?

Hard to say without a pic but yes if a stinger got in there and you did not notice he could have chewed it out. Jack is a "man" and it takes a lot for him to start limping if something is in his pad!

Yeah, I have a girly little boy and he isn't limping so I guess it can't be to painful for him but I still felt like an awful mom and was like panicking. But I will try the vitamin e and put mushers secret on top of it, and see how it goes. If it doesn't get better, I will post a picture and see if it could be anything else.

Thank you!
