    hi everyone, I noticed this after my dog was limping, and this cut was underneath her paw. what could it be? is it curable at home or do I need to go to the vet? I googled and people said if you bandage it would cure on its own

    Depends what it is
    If it's a simple cut or graze, it would probably heal on its own.
    If it's an ulcer, a foreign body, is infected or something more sinister all together, you'd be best with a vet.
    Issue being nobody will be able to tell you with any certainty over the internet what it is

    It looks like it is between the toes but I get confused by photos sometimes. If so it is most probably caused by a foreign body such as a grass seed (though funny time of year) and does need the vet to sort it out.
