Toenails Digging Into Pads

Guest Branna

Recommended Posts

Hi, I wonder if anyone might offer some suggestions. My houndie has rather gnarly toes and probably has arthritis in them. That said, he loves his walks but lately his side toenails have been digging into the pads on both feet causing them to bleed. It doesn't seem to bother him, and I always clean them up afterwards, but I can see how this might cause a problem for him.

The nails are as short as I can get them without hitting the quick. I can't see how I could put anything there (like a toe spacer (if he were a ballerina :) )) and still be able to walk, so if anyone has any ideas I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks all very much!
