Lucie has a later of skin missing from her pad and it's causing her to limp. I don't know how it happened. Is there anything I can put on it.

Noticed some blood on the floor two days ago, checked Rudy's paws and he had a flap laceration...don't know where he got it. Washed it with soap and water, and all I had in the house was Curad Silver gel. It's worked well:no infection I used Bag Balm very successfully on torn pads before, on other dogs. I also have used Nu-stock, but the smell makes my eyes water, and I don't like it in the house. Kept them off pavement, concrete etc., for several days.

Delgado ripped a hole in both front main pads a few weeks ago. I did a mild epsom salt soak followed by polysporin and socks for the evening. Then I did another soak in the morning and used newskin liquid bandage for the day.

It took about 3 days before he stopped limping but no infection or complications thankfully

Two front claws broken at the base in separate incidents on the icy snow last winter. I had to cut them as they grew out, and he was not very stoical about it, to say the least! It set me back 4-5 months training him to be calm during routine trimmings.

I thought about using nuskin. So I will pick some up. She isn't limping anymore and it wasn't bleeding at all.

How long does it take for their pads to toughen up I really want to be able to take her for walks in the early evening but clearly the pavement is still too hot after the sun goes down.

Has anyone used those booties for dogs?

I used booties for my DM dog.....they work just fine....since your dog is not dragging her paws the booties should last a longer time. they might seem a bit clumsy at first but they get the job done.

I bought this type https://www.dogbooties.com/shop/1000...C2%AE-booties/

Have you ever tried indoor traction boots for your dog? My old girl has DM and all the indoor floors are smooth tile or wood, so she has trouble getting around sometimes.

We tried lots of boots but for various reasons they didn't work. We ended up making our own dog boots following a youtube video
you don't have to be great at sewing to make them. We use fleece for winter ones and water proof material for "rainboots" (well more like mud boots) with suede on the bottom for traction. Just an idea anyway...
