Thread: paw pads torn

    paw pads torn

    After swimming in a pool, my dog went running on concrete. All four of his paw pads are torn, not bleeding, but the superficial layer of "skin" is now a flap.

    Any ideas on how to treat this?

    Paw Pads

    They are typically pretty tough... and heal on their own. If they are really bad, you may need to get them looked at by a VET.

    In the meantime, clean and cover the paws, and watch VERY carefully for infection (redness, swelling, pus, etc) If you see any signs of infection get your dog to the vet.

    My BC cut her Pad really bad this weekend... talk about pissed... she was pissed when she did not get to go on a 15 mile run the following morning. Hopefully it will be healed for the run this saturday!
