Hole in paw pad

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, 

Our greyhound (5 years old) started limping out of the blue and we noticed she had a big hole in the paw pad on her back left leg. We've soaked her paw in epsom salts to draw anything out and it looks clean. We've been applying some paw balm and keeping her off her feet as well. It's been a week and she is now walking much better but I wanted to know if there is anything else we can do to speed up the healing process? She has a lot of nervous energy and not being able to take her on walks/have a big play seems to really be getting on her nerves. We've tried booties but she cannot get on with them and ends up in a big zoomie to try and get them off!


I've attached a photo as well if that helps.
