Corn On Top Of Pad Home Treatment?


Recommended Posts

K has a small corn (my guess anyway) at the top of his pad. What is a good home remedy and treatment for this?

Can we use people corn topical treatment on dogs, Salicylic acid or something similar?

You can try just about anything (and people have tried nearly everything), but in that location it's more lifely to be the start of a cutaneous horn than a corn, which occur on the pad bottoms 99.9% of the time. Corn treatments won't generally work on horns, but you could probably give it a shot.

 

Not sure what other people would say, but IMO those should be removed by a vet. Though if you're adventurous and confident he won't bite, you can try it yourself.

Not sure it's a corn but the only thing that worked on my corn dog Rex (all 4 paws) was duct tape. Gotta get the good stuff like Duck or Nashau. If it is a corn vet remove is expensive and pretty much worthless. Maybe give duct tape a try....can't hurt.

cutaneous horn

 

A what? :lol

 

I googled it, that's gross, I may need a new dog, anyone want a slightly used late model 2016 Doberman :rofl

 

 

Edit:

There is a vet at the shelter today where Trudy is working doing a rabies clinic, she showed her the pic, said ignore it for now. Hmm, it bothers me.

Could be a wart. If it gets bigger and bothers him, depending on what kind of wart it is, it can be treated by a vet with azithromycin or can be cauterized. If it's a seed wart, it will get bigger and will cause him some discomfort. Then you can soak it and pop out the seed or get him to run around after soaking. Seed warts will often pop out themselves at that point.

Warts aren't so bad comparatively. Viral warts, you take a pill. Seed warts, you can pop like a pimple after they get kinda big. A little gross :puke:puke:puke . Other warts, just a little electricity. I admit, I was never the one who popped the seed warts, unless I really felt like throwing up. I was the one who soaked them and let the dog run until they popped themselves. :lol

I'd say leave it if it's not bugging her. You might be able to soak it a couple times a day in some warm epsom salt water to see if you can "pick" it off. Ryder had some weird thing in an odd area of his big pad on rear foot which after soaking and some squeezing removed a small foreign object. Literally so small wouldn't have thunk it would have made a bump like that. After all the squeezing, it was gone never to return.

Hi Jeff,

 

at least, it seems,that this kind of corn doesn't bother your hound when walking? I had good results for many kinds

of skin problems in my hounds with Caléndula mother tinkture. A little bit on a tiny piece of cotton and massaging

it about 3 times a day on the little wart or corn...you could try that. Have luck!
