Could This Be The Start Of A Corn

Sadie was limping when I came home. Our house is mostly ceramic tile.


It's hard in the center.









I"m really looking for someone to tell me that it's not a corn and it's just an ouchie.



Update Tuesday 6/17


So I've been soaking the paw in epsom salts, applying liberal amounts of bag balm twice daily and the limp is about 90% better. The spot is no longer hard so I'm thinking it was just a bruise. :)


Thank goodness for no corns!

I don't know. However, Merlin had the same thing a while ago and he's fine now. I, too, was worried about a corn at the time.


Hope it's nothing! :goodluck

It could be a corn starting, or it could be "just" a bruise -- as from a pebble or similar. Might give it a soak in warm epsom salts, 5 minutes a couple times a day, if she'll let you.

If its the light spot and its raised then I would say it looks like Train's corn. The epsom salt soaks are great. I took burpdog's advice and used my thumb nail to work the center of the corn out. One of my hounds had his corn removed by our vet using a dental instrument. Best of luck.
