kay88 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...

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.

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?

Bob_McBob 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.

Juliem24 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.

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.
