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.

Tonight when I was walking Watson and Darwin at the end of the walk I noticed that Watson was limping and when we got home he didn't want to walk over the gravel. When we got inside, I had him lay down and looked at the pads of his paws. On both front paws the pad is torn in the front. I took some pictures:

Should I just put some neosporn on his paws and just monitor them over the next couple days? In the second picture there is a flap of pad that didn't come off. I was wondering if I should leave it on there and put neosporn under, or should I cut it off and just clean it from there.

I'm not really sure what he cut it on. I'm assuming it might of been this morning when my roommate let him out and he got out of the yard. He doesn't make any sounds when walking but he definitely is sore.

What temperature is it outside when you are walking your dogs? The sidewalk, asphalt and gravel obtain higher temperatures then the air outside in the summer. I usually walk mine in the early morning or after the sun has gone down in the summer.

Just take care of it as you would take care of a burn. Keep a close eye, make sure they aren't licking at it to irritate the wound. Go see your vet at your earliest convenience to make sure there isn't anything not physical wrong going on.

Good luck, hope your pack gets well soon!

I typically walk them either in the morning of after 6. The dogs don't walk on asphalt/sidewalk, the path we take is all grassy. And when I said gravel, I meant rocks. Our driveway is rocky and covered in shade all day. I don't think it's due to the ground being too hot. It's not a blister, it's as if the pad has been sliced on something.

Neosporin should be fine, I wouldn't do anything about the one that is falling off as far as cutting it off goes, your idea of neosporin between it and supervision should suffice. If it doesn't seem to get better or show signs of improvement in the next few days, see what your vet thinks

This happened with Pippa the first few times I tried biking with her. Even though it might be cooler when you walk them in the evening, the ground can still be quite warm. Also, if they're pulling at all, that can make it a lot worse.

I tried to clean it off with a little water, put some Neosporin on it and left it alone. It looked a lot better in a week and almost gone after two weeks. Also try and keep them off any type of pavement until then. If it doesn't appear to be getting better, definitely take them into see a vet.

Cleanse with Hydrogen Peroxide and either use some Musher's Secret or Corn Husker's Lotion-

Ah, yes! The Musher's Secret. Meant to include that in my post.

I've been using that before walking/running/biking with Pippa since we had an issue and haven't had a problem since.
