Amos seems to have raw paws, when I lift his feet and look under and between the paw it seems to be red, and he has been constantly licking it since we've gotten back home from the event this past weekend. Any suggestions on what to do to help with his paws?

Thanks

He may have a thorn between a toe or something like that. Sometimes my dogs will hurt a paw and limp around here for a day or so. I dont do anything if I cant find the source of the hurt. It just goes away. There are some remedies for sore paws, but as usual, I dont know them, but maybe some of the others will tune in.

It may just be that his feet werent used to the terrain. When we have people who bring their dogs out here and then go back home will tell me that their dogs are limping. Some of these ole caliche rocks are sharp.

Thanks Betty, I kinda figured it had to do with the terrain because when I examined him I never found a thorn or anything of that sort. I also thought it could have been when the dogs were in the river and running and jumping on all those rocks. Just wanted to make sure it wasn't anything serious that needed more attention.

Oh, yeah- I didnt even think of the rocks in the river! For sure, those would make paws raw!!
