Default Cut on paw pad advice :(??

We were out playing fetch in the field off leash yesterday (so Anna was running) and when I got back home I noticed a few drops of blood on the floor, I checked her and there is a cut on the paw pad (toe??) that is on the back of the leg, the one further up with no nail. I cleaned it right away in the bath tub and put neosporin on it and crated her. I cleaned it again after I got home from work last night and added more neo, also put some on this morning. She isn't licking at it, and noes not seem to bothered ....that being said its a pretty big cut.

It's not bleeding.

My question is, is it safe to use liquid bandage on it? If I notice any swelling or redness she will geo straight to the vet. I wonder if I should just take her any way to be safe. Has this happened to any one else?

My poor baby

I no longer go to the vet for cut pads if they stop bleeding on their own (and they already have). I think you have done perfect, cleaned it out and keeping an eye on it for infection.

I may wrap it up just so it's a bit protected from stuff poking into it and hurting them or opening it a bit. More like a barrier then anything else.

Good luck!

Is liquid bandage ok? I got some vet wrap also. I haven't put either on her yet...also I just took a pic.. It looks so bad to me, I don't know how she isn't caring about it

When Pyrate stepped on glass and cut his paw pad I cleaned it and also soaked it in Epsom Salts to help it heal faster. Of course he wouldn't sit with his foot in the water so I sat with him laying down and used a sponge, putting the sponge in the water and then letting it rest on the paw pad until it cooled, then redipping. I think it helped it heal faster that way, not to mention he always enjoyed the attention.

I did at first using an old sock, but only for a couple days as Pyrate hated the sock. When we went outside I put on a dog boot on that foot for week or so until it healed well enough to not be tender.

I've never used the Liquid bandage so can't comment.

I just did more like pyratemom, keep it covered using a dressing then wrapping it all over with the cling VetWrap stuff and then that white waterproof tape that sticks WICKED good (so make sure to only put it over the vetwrap and not on the fur or you'll have to cut if off.

Liquid bandage is superglue and it hurts alot when applied. When Apache tore her pads up I sprayed vetricyn and didnt walk her for a couple days. She wouldnt tolerate vet wrap so we left it unbandaged.

I've never used liquid bandage on an animal but I used it once and it burns horribly and smells worse. It might draw more attention to her paw...
