    Exclamation Chunk out of pad!

    The other day I noticed my dog licking his front right foot, then I noticed it was bleeding from one of his little pads.

    (The letter E pad)

    When I looked at the pad it had a pretty good chunk out of it, but he was walking fine. Then late last night he started limping on that foot, I soaked it in Epsom salts and he didnít go to day care today. Iím not sure what Iím supposed to do except wrap it and keep him off it for a bit? Is there anything I can put on it to maybe soothe the pain or to make it heal faster? Thanks for any advice!

    Side note: I tried googleing this but all I got was cracked paws or infected paws

    foot pads are nothing to mess with

    Yeah I guess I will, I wish I could save a $60 trip to the vet if he’s just going to wrap it up and tell me to keep him off it for awhile… Oh and he’s not limping on it today but I can tell its still sore.
