Ive cleaned the paw with warm water and soap but only cleaned the one to see if it helps or not as he didint like it being done, anything else i can do?This happened to our dog with one paw, it was very red. I washed the pad with Hibiclens, I don't know if its sold in the UK. It's a antiseptic/antimicrobial used to prep skin prior to surgery. I washed and thoroughly dried the paw 1x day for 2 days, then once more 2 days later and it cleared up.
Our previous dog had tick between it's toes, so clean well and look with a flashlight.
You can put a soapy solution in a bowl and dip/soak the paw in and then dip in a rinse bowl. Be sure to dry it well. Some soaps leave a residue, don't rinse completely and you want to prevent a secondary infections so if you can find an antimicrobial soap that may work better.Ive cleaned the paw with warm water and soap but only cleaned the one to see if it helps or not as he didint like it being done, anything else i can do?
Today and yesterday has been really bad weather with rain. All the days before have been hot or just cloudy but dry and he has been in the garden 24/7 for the past week (apart from these 2 days)Do you have a lot of damp weather? Is your dog getting his feet wet/muddy each time he goes outside?
