Forum Rules
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.

Hey everyone,

Lilu is a little over 2 and she's had this for a while, but it doesnt seem to be bothering her. Some of her paw pads look as if hair/fiber is growing out of them. This is most likely from her being in the dog park twice a day, every day.

Just wanted to know if this is a normal thing and how does everyone treat this? I do have mushers paw, but don't use it as much as I should.

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

A picture would help - is the hair coming out of the pads themselves or between the pads?

Its coming from the paws. Its not really hair its like the paw has cracked and looks like fiber will take a pic of it soon and upload, but it looks like this. After searching I found that they call this fuzzy feet

Don't know anything about this - have you tried something like Musher's Secret?

It's most likely hyperkeratosis. You can trim the fibers down. It's a common occurrence.

You can use moisturizers to help keep the pads softer. Walking on harder surfaces (like concrete) will help wear the fibers down as well.
