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.

Hi! I have a 10 month old Siberian Husky, named Kai, and he resides outdoors most of the time. We have a concrete back yard with a garden sectioned off with grass and dirt. Kai sleeps in his dog house which we built with tiles for the flooring. Recently I've noticed some rough dry cracks on his paw pads and there are some patches of pink-red coloring. Not blood associated, well at least no physical signs. I am very worried about his health. Is it because the weather has been too cold? I read somewhere that an owner applied Vaseline on the injured areas and put socks over his pet's paws, however I'm unsure about the safety/toxicity measures with that method.
Currently he seems to be doing well. His paws don't seem to bother him, but I'm very concerned about possible chronic effects. Any help would be very greatly appreciated. Thank you!

With a concrete yard I'm not sure how you could prevent that. Maybe place some old rugs outside on the concrete? If he was an inside dog I think it would be much easier to prevent. Booties would help I think but would not be practical to have him wear all the time. If he has to live on concrete it might just be best if he gets calloused pads though.

Thank you so much guys! I've been applying Musher's Secret and it seems to be getting slightly better so far! I will have to do more research about the effects of concrete on the paw pads though. Thanks again everyone! Happy new year!
