Default Dog Pad Question

Dog has a nick on his pad, starts bleeding when he walks. It's small, but I worry about the guy.

Anybody have a remedy?

As crazy as it sounds the vet we took our cat to used superglue on a cut in his pad. They said it dries fast, holds the wound closed and just falls off with the dead skin later.

thats a sound treatment as the original use for some superglue was for a quick wound sealer in the field. thats why it sticks to your hand so well.

Just make sure there isn't anything in the wound before you seal it up!

Rub his pads down with some Bag Balm for a few weeks. See if that helps soften them up a little.

What kind of dog is it? I get some coon hunting catalog infrequently that has rubber dog boot, 2 or 3 different sizes. For sled dogs we use booties made of polarfleece with velcro around the top. I was going to suggest superglue my ownself, but was too late. Maybe supergle, then a layer of Shoegoo to coat it.

Does it bother him much? I would say try the super glue and just keep an eye on it and let it heal. It may take it longer to heal since he walks on it and keeps opening up but as long as you keep it clean it should be fine.

Don't your feet ever get dry and cracked? I know mine do... I have been known to take an old pair of socks and slather my feet in bag balm and go to sleep that way after about three nights my feet are nice and soft for a long time.

Bag balm was created to stop cow teats from getting chapped from all the milking. If you don't have bag balm in your BOB you need to get some. I have like 5 cans of that stuff around the house. Not only does it help with dry skin or chapped dry cracked parts of the body it has antibacterial properties to it as well. I am telling you this is the only animal product that the FDA inspects for human use. Another good lotion to have on hand is Corn Huskers that was invented to help heal the hands of the people shuckin corn because they would get all the small cuts from the edge of the corn leaves.

You don't want your pup to have hard dry pads because they crack. In the winter I always recommended to my clients to get some boots for the dog because the salt on the roads and sidewalks reeks havoc on a dogs feet. Benning I know you was in the military the number one thing they teach you is take care of your feet.
