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.

noticed layla favoring her right front leg tonite, and seen that her pad on her foot is raw. its not bleeding but can tell somehow she has peeled, skinned part of the pad.

will this heal on its own? can i put neosporin on it? any suggestions?

Pad injuries (particularly peeling, cuts and bleeding cracks) take a few weeks to recover. I try to limit activity to an absolute minimum and keep any sort of walking on soft surfaces. Wrapping some coban (vet wrap, self adhering tape stuff) around the foot for the walk helped me prevent bleeding, but I never went over half a mile with a fresh pad injury. If it's not very deep and already flaking skin, I would shear it off and eliminate all activity for two to three days. That's what has worked for me.

This also happens when a new dog is introduced to our exercise routine. The pads take a lot of conditioning to build toughness. With an uninjured dog I try to get them on every surface type I can think of.

And yes, neosporin is a fine ointment to use.

Make sure you wrap the paw if you put neosporin on. It could be toxic. i don't know about yours, but my dogs are lickers and would lick that stuff right off.

I agree with the limited exercise, and coban badges. However I disagree about the neosporin part. Neosporin slows down the recovery process on the pads, my vet said about our BC that ran away for a couple days.


There are doggie safe ones out there.

We just recovered from 3 paw pad injuries. We were very protective - Epsom salt soaks 2x a day, neosporin, wrapped paw on limited walks. He healed up real nice. We did pretty much what Eddy said above. He healed up real nice.
