Cracked pad.

Post by Jnestie84 on Wed Jun 07 2017, 22:19

Just noticed that Gus has a few cracks on his pads. Should we be concerned is there anything we should put on them? Thanks

Snap! Gizmo's just had this happen, I put some coconut oil on them to see if it helps. Hopefully someone will be able to say if that's any good.

Does it seem to be hurting him?

Anything dog friendly to soften it up is fine, coconut oil is great but doesn't seem to last very long for some reason Laughing

Aloe Vera is also good

He isn't in any pain. It's probably just me over worrying haha.

I'm keeping an eye out when he's in the garden, I don't want grass seeds or bramble thorns getting in.

Will give the aloe vera a shot, but I'm sure he'll lick that off too.

I picked up "ultrabalm" from Lush store online, all natural ingredients and safe for dogs. I put it on my girls paw pads morning and night and it did wonders within 3 days of use!
