Foot sores

Hey everyone. I noticed these sores on my dogs front paws. They aren't on the back feet. They were bleeding a little, but not much. He has limped a little on them, but 98% of the time doesn't seem to notice. In fact, I doubt I would have noticed except he scraped/broke a nail down to the qwick out romping around and there was quite a bit of blood. I was looking at that injury and noticed these. This is day 2 or 3 of having them.

I am putting anti-biotic ointment on them a few times a day. And today only let him walk on grass and the dirt next to the road. Walking, no running. (well, as little as you can get a V to run)

Are these normal? Are they serious? Any ideas what could have caused them? How can I prevent them? He had spent a significant amount of time running a paved road the day he hurt his nail and I noticed the blood.

Thanks,

Looks like just he wore the pads from the pavement. Pads heal quickly.

Thanks again Texasred. I will have to make sure that we increase pavement time more slowly in the future. It is always helpful to find out what is normal and what isn't.

Once his pads have healed, you can start using Tuff foot on them on them daily
It should help to get the pads in better condition. I also like Mushers Secret if they are going to be on rough surfaces.

Would Tuff foot be a daily thing, and Mushers Secret be something that we just put on when we think the conditions would be harsh? Or, is it one or the other daily?

Thanks,

be careful with the antibiotic ointment , allergies can be an issue. Betadine can be used as an alternative.Try soaking your dogs feet in Epsom salt bath. It can be a trying experience but it worked for mine. He split a pad in the winter he got into a pile of rock salt and froze and cracked his paw. It took about a week to get him back up and moving.

dogs are good 4 U
