    Blister on paw

    Hi, I just noticed that there is a "blister" on my dog's front right paw.
    That blister is also in between the "fingers".
    What is that and how can I treat that?

    My dog seems fine overall but he licks on that blister a lot.

    I would go ahead and go to the Vet to get a proper treatment for the paw, infection can set in and go all the way up his leg. Next stop would be a groomers to trim his paws up and get his nails clipped so that you can better treat the area and avoid any other injuries.

    This is your first post, so what type of dog is he and how old?

    Just by looking at the picture, I can't really tell what it could be.

    Thanks EscVelocity. Yes I plan to take him to the vet first thing in the morning.
    He's a 1 year old schnauzer named Samson.

    I don't think that looks like a blister, it looks more like a bug bite or bee sting to me. I do recommend a vet as well but has he stepped on a bee or anything like that?

    Awe, he's so cute. I hope everything is fine with him. Please give us updates on the Lil Guy.

    Any lumps should be checked out by a vet. We may be good on this forum, but we're unable to check the dog hands on and so could easily tell you it's "xyz" and have it turn out to be something completely different (and potentially more serious).

    We make a living by what we get but we make a life by what we give
