dog-and-puppy1Inflamed pads on the bottom of your dog’s feet can indicate any number of problems. A thorn, a splinter or a burr could wedge between his toes causing pain and discomfort. Maybe he nicked himself on some metal or glass and the wound is becoming inflamed.  This could be the reason why he is spending more time in his dog bed lately.  This could also occur in the winter when he walked on salted roads leaving his pads sore and cracked.  He may have even developed an itchy annoying skin allergy. If a look at your dog’s feet reveals a thorn or splinter, carefully tweeze it out then rub on some antibiotic cream.  If his pads are cracked and raw, wash and dry them gently and apply a soothing ointment.  If you can’t figure out what’s wrong, your veterinarian can.
