Hi there. i have a 4 month old pup. its a fox terrier crossed with a beagle. i walk him 1 mile or 20 minutes each morning. yesterday when i returned from the walk to notice blood coming from his paw. it seems like between his nails or somewhere. i noticed this morning that he is keeping his paw off the ground a lot instead of leaning on it too. im wondering what i should do about this. would it be ok to bathe it in warm salty water and dont walk him for a few days??

If he has a broken nail he may need the vet to remove it and get you some antibiotics. Good luck.

Take him to the vet. If it's bleeding then there's a good chance for an infection to develop, esspecialy since the paw is in direct contact with a huge variety of dirt. It's already gotten worse since you first noticed it. And it's apparently painful for your pup since he's not putting weight on it.

What are you taking him in Tuesday for? Could you move that up? I would not want to wait a week on this one. It hurts and could turn into much more of a problem than it is now if your dog gets an infection.
