Hi all! I'm new here, and a first time dog owner... hope someone can help please! My energetic 1 yr old golden retriever sliced his carpal paw pad playing fetch yesterday. There was a big flap of thick skin and quite raw looking skin underneath. Today he managed to lose the flap of skin so the raw bit is exposed. It sounds and looks horrid, but he's not bothered by it unless you try to bandage it. He's managed to get all bandages / tubey grip off in no time so it's no use trying - causes him more distress anyway. So I'm just trying to keep it clean, washing his paw with salty water and rinsing after every time we've been outside. I was going to take him to the vets but they had no appointments today and dog seems happy enough. Not having come across this before, do I need to be more concerned or am I doing the right thing? I've read that hibiscrub is good but I'm afraid it might sting.
