    hi all,

    i have noticed my pup limping a bit today so i checked her paw. her front right paw pad is like its been worn away and one of her nails, so much that it looks raw.:frown:

    i think this is due to her pulling the whole time on her walks.:rolleyes:

    i have cleaned it and im going to clean it again in a min, but what can i use to make a bandage? i dont have any of the proper stuff here! anyone know??:confused1:

    cheers x :)

    maybe you could use a sock as a bandage?

    You could use a sock or cut up a clean towel. Then to protect it you could cover it in a strong piece of plastic bag and tape it up with duct tape or similar to protect it.

    If you have one, cut up a baby's nappy. Waterproof outside and nicely padded inside.

    Holly has about 4 cuts on her front pads, and we've put some sudocream on them as they seem to be scabbing over ok. Trying not to let her go on grass, but it's because she was an idiot and fell off the patio onto the grass!
