Poor Theo. The big goofball cut up his foot pad *again* swimming at the lake on Saturday. He is hopping around on three legs. This one seems worse than the last one, which we just let heal on its own (he is currently refusing to go down the stairs unless we lure him with treats). SU is going out later to pick up vet wrap and a bootie, and to try to find some EMT gel.
I just hate to see him unhappy or in pain.
Ouch. Poor Theo. Zoe has had her share of torn pads.
Hope he heals quickly. We keep about 2 or 3 tubes of EMT on hand because she is such a tomboy at the beach.

Sorry about your roughed up pad, Theo. Continue to pursue all avenues of sympathy from mom and dad.

Dutch and Zena tore theirs up pretty bad this summer. I kept them wrapped and in 2 days; they were almost good as new!
Here's the poor soul, Dutchie:
Poor Theo! Hang in there! Make sure you milk it for all the treats you can while it lasts!
Awww..poor Theo. Nathan, yesterday at the Lab Fest we had 2-3 labs with bloody pads from the concrete around the pool. I agree with you that the only way to treat it, is to keep it clean and maybe some anti bacterial gel. To stop the bleeding, we found Dermoplast spray works well. Then adding the gel after.
I hope he is back to his old self soon :-\
Heal quickly, and feel better soon, Theo!
poor theo :-[
i hope his paw heals soon.
*lots of healing thoughts*

Poor Theo, hope he feels better soon. Brigetta is also hopping around on 3 legs from a torn pad

Ouchie, that's no fun.
My old Golden tore his up pretty bad, and the vet stitched it closed. It opened once, and they restitched it. It then healed.
