locket Posted August 19, 2015 Share Posted August 19, 2015 Hi all, I need some wisdom.Jack hurt his paw in March-April and there was a little break of his pad. He was limping of course, so we soaked his foot, put some antibiotical cream and covered it when he was walking outside. It took maybe 2 weeks and the limping was gone, he was walking and playing normally, but there was always a little dot that stayed there, that we assumed was a kind of scar. When he got hurt, we could not get anything out, there didn't seem to be any foreign object either.Last week-end, he ran like any other greyhound, but ran on some rocks and started limping again. Turned out the problem comes from the exact same pad as last time and same area. coincidence? I don't think so. This time, there isn't any break of the skin, no swelling that we can see. He uses his paw to some extend, but when running, he will run on 3 paws. If we press on the region, he yelps, it doesn't come from the leg or anything, it is really the pad.My question is : What is it and what can we do? We don't feel like it is a foreign object, unless something stayed in there from last Spring, in which case wouldn't it have bothered him beforehand as well?We don't feel like it is a corn as there is no definite edge. Although he walks better on grass than any hard surface, but it came a little bit sudden to be a corn.Can greyhound gets wart, and did he step on something that could have triggered pain?Thank you, here are some pictures of the padPost-soaking Pre soaking and side Quote Cynthia, with Charlie (Britishlionheart) & Zorro el GalgoCaptain Jack (Check my Spots), my first love Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
