Reilly cut one of her pads yesterday, I bathed it in salty water and got a vet appt straight away. The vet said its fine, not deep enough for a stitch , and to bring her back in a week (shes getting spayed next week, so will check then), also to keep it dry. It doesn't seem to bother her, shes not licking it and is limping ever so slightly. I took her out last night (not on pavements as vet advised) and I also put on a pawz glove and that stayed on well, it did bleed again on walk but stopped instantly. The vet said pads are very thick and very vascular, but also very good healers. She said not to bandage it as , as its not a terrible cut the air will do it good. My question is, To the the most common injury, Apparently is, how long do you reckon it will take to heal, and any good advice to help it on its way. Oh and also, I have to keep it dry, but do you reckon I should still bathe it.... She is a year old (well next week) border collie and is already giving me the sad eyes, cos I've not taken her to see her pals this morning^! Should have titled this thread...'Thick and anxious owner alert!!' Thanks in advance.
