Default Help!! Bleeding from 4 paws, unable to walk

3 days ago my GSD was limping it appeared he has a cut on one of his paws i sprayed it with OTC spray (its used to heal wounds) and i didnt really get the chance to have a good look on it untill tonight when i saw blood on the flood and checked his paw and it was bleeding. in between the toes are cut and the pads are severely cut there was alot of bleeding i managed to stop it but he cant walk properly and the strangest thing all four of his paws are like this!!! hes in alot of pain and i have him on anti biotics to ease the pain, applied wound power and some more otc spray but he keeps licking it . there is no vet availiable at this time but as soon as the vet is availiable im gonna carry him will he make it

You need to take him to a vet. Cuts on the paws can be very serious because of blood loss.

I see you said you'll take him to the vet when they open. Please update us! Good Luck!

Get your boy to the vet as soon as you can, was you in a area that had a lot of broken glass, or crushed shells?

update* the vet said someone withing my neighbourhood intentionally used acid on the dogs feets it had to have the hair around its paws shaved and the paws were washed and bandaged, his balls are sore kinda yellow but the vet cleaned it. the vet said he cant tell me for sure where the dogs health is leading, my dog's heart skipped a few beats while in surgery their gonna sample the blood and test to see if the acid got anywhere else. =(

That is horrible, to think he was licking that, he probably has it on his tongue and may have ingested it, how insidious.
