Cactus Spines in Feet
As we start doing more and more walks with Gunnar off leash, he is finding his way into more and more cactus. He doesn't seem to mind, but occasionally the top of a cactus will break off with the spines lodged deep in his foot pads. It's got to hurt and I know some of the spines are breaking off in there.
2 questions. One will he learn to avoid the cactus? He doesn't seem to look for them at all. And two, how many of you have seen spines in dogs feet get infected? And what does that look like?
