Paw care for your dog

Friday, March 2, 2012
posted by Jim Murphy

Grooming your dog does a lot more than keep her looking good.  This is also an opportunity to check for any health issues that need to be addressed by a veterinarian. For example, you should keep a protective eye on her paws. When you groom your dog, carefully check the pads on her feet. Sometimes they can become injured or inflamed, especially if your dog is walking on rough ground or has stepped into some kind of irritating chemical. Keep an eye out for painful, broken nails that can become infected. Brittle nails should also prompt you to call a professional because they may indicate a fungal infection or a nutritional deficiency.  If you notice anything unusual while grooming your dog, have it checked by a veterinarian.

Remember, your pets count!
