Is This A Malformed Pad Or Some Kind Of Growth?

Wilbon was a bit gimpy after playing today

i was looking at his paws for any cuts-sores and noticed one of his pad has a big outgrowth.

i wasnt sure if it was just a malformed pad or something more serious.

going to check with vet anyway, but has anyone seen this?

That's really interesting! Has he always had an odd pad, or is this new? He almost looks like he's growing an extra pad!


Could be a malformation of the keratin (hyperkeratosis), or it could be a growth of some kind. I'd certainly let the vet take a look. Good luck with it!

Looks like it could be Discoid Lupus. Soul has it and his pads "overgrow". How's his nose? Any pink spots? Does it still have it's cobblestone appearance?

Huh. It almost looks like a partial extra toe. Unlike any other toe-pad growths I've ever seen.


This is a nutsy tangent, but I remember in gradeschool, a kid who had an "eleventh toe" that was sort of conjoined with the big toe on one of his feet. :lol


I'll be curious what your vet has to say. Hope the limp is nothing. :goodluck

vet said it is a Plantar Wart

he wants us to put vaseline on it and wrap it in a plastic bag, then boot a bootie on.

if it doesnt go away they will have to dig it out
