While we were out running the dogs yesterday, Levi must have stepped on something that pratically skinned one of his paw pads. :( He's limping pretty badly and won't use that front leg, so, needless to say, he won't do much of anything but hobble around the house. lol. Does anyone know of a good medicine to apply to his paw to help it heal faster? Or should I just let him lay around until it gets to looking better?

Ah, that's a good idea. I don't know if he will bite it off, though...

Rachael,

I super glued my cats pad together. Some how she got a real bad cut in it. I sprayed it with some cleaner and then super glued it. It healed up nicely. It wasnt easy dealing with that cat, trying to help her!! Kinda like dealing with a Lacy dog and their feet!

lol. Super glue might be my best bet, then. I'll just have to keep Levi from messing it up even more and hopefully he'll be able to go out again soon.

Rach there is a product called Musher's Cream, you can order it online @ Jefferspets.com
It protects the pads before damage is done as well as after and is non-toxic.
They have several products for this and none of them are real expensive.
Also fresh aloe vera aids in faster healing.

Ah, that looks like a good thing to have on hand. I might order one of those in case my dogs get their feet hurts again.
Thank for the tip. :)

The guy I do most of my hunting with has abunch of dogs with really weak pads. He just slathers bagbalm on when they blow a pad and they heal up pretty fast.

Oh wow, so much stuff to use! lol.
Thanks, guys. :)

Its not often that I have to do anything about my dog's pads, but it's good to know that hurt pads are easy to treat.

you could always go to some boots if he is messing up his pads often, plus its fun to watch till he gets used to them. I know when the snow frezes it sure tears up some dogs pads.

So poor Sadie had an intense training session at the bay pen this weekend, plus I tried to get her to help us push a hog out of the holding pen, and she ripped off the top layer on three out of her four pads :( Of course as soon as I made a big deal out of it, she started limping around, but I do think they are really tender. I have Pad Heal as well as Bag Balm, though I think the Pad Heal is better for the raw injuries.

How long do you normally let your dogs heal when they get an injury like this? I'm debating about agility this week. We are supposed to have our distance class tonight, but if she is still favoring them I'll probably skip it. The footing is sorta like wood chips and I'm worried that would really irritate them. We are supposed to have class tomorrow as well. But we have a big weekend coming up and I'd much rather she be ready to hunt on Saturday than make it to class. Thoughts?

Chad ya the frozen snow really tears their feet but sandstone is terrible. And Julie I'd just let her sit out on the classes on stuff like that we usually give them at least 3 days.
