MattB Posted January 15, 2016 Share Posted January 15, 2016 Hi, I'd really appreciate your opinions on this picture of Daisy's paw. I'd previously posted that we took Daisy to the vet to the vet about a limp. An x-ray revealed arthritis and we were given a month's worth of pain meds which we were told to try for two weeks then stop then start again if necessary. I have done this and I'm honestly not sure if they are making a difference. With and without her tablets there is the occasional limp for a couple of steps. The vet did say that Daisy's feet were cracked and we could try shoes but we didn't discuss this as a cause of limping (as I was so concerned about osteo we got x-rays done). However I'm wondering if it's Daisy's paws that are causing her discomfort - when the limping occurs seems to be very specific to particular surfaces, on pavement she's fine but then we pass over some rougher tarmac which sometimes causes the limp, also some gravel. On grass Daisy is her usual self, zoomies, pulling on the lead, pouncing on our other hound. I've got paw creams and wax and I've bought some shoes for Daisy's front paws but I thought it would be good to post a pic of her paws - to me these look like they're really dry and cracked - is this the case? Are these likely to be painful? I've just got our other hound as a reference point who has much smoother pads. Any thoughts much appreciated.
