Damaged pad

Postby Payce » Thu Jan 31, 2019 1:26 pm

Sky damaged her rear pad. Vet said it look like abrasion damage and not torn off. Have no clue how she did it. About a third of the pad is gone. No bleeding, tender (as you would expect). Treating with an anticeptic and keeping moist, per vet instructions.
An other recommendations? Hope to have her up and ready for a snow goose hunt in 3 weeks. Wishful thinking?

Musher's Secret is good stuff. It's great in cold and snow, but also seems to work pretty well as a protective.

Mushers secret or bag balm work great.

I am not a veterinarian, but on the advice of a long gone old dog pro, we've been using the feed store product "Cut Heal" on sliced pads and umpteen other wounds, dogs' and mine, for decades with fine result. Apply it twice a day and don't worry if Pup licks it off after a bit, if he's so inclined.
