I mentioned in another thread that Elias cut his paw pad at the dog beach the other day. We have been appliying bactine and neosporin.
I think the pain is getting worse, he is limping really bad and barely putting any pressure on this foot.
Last night when I came home from work he was out side and tried to go up the 2 steps out back and fell. This morning he wouldn;t go down the stairs so my husband carried him out back and then I carried him back in the house before I left for work.
Does that sound normal? Should be be that sore?
I am thinking we might take a trip to the vet tonight.
I would take him to the vet.... Indy cut his foot at the beach once and we had the same problem, but what we didnt know is there was a little piece of glass imbedded in the pad, so every time he would walk, it would bleed...Good luck with your dog...
Mom to Indy 6/12/98 to 11/16/11 (always in my heart), and Jobe 8-14-2000 to 6/24/2013 (Working TDI) English Labs, and Annie our Golden Retriever (TDI), and Kodiak (who will one day hopefully be a TDI dog if he doesn't kill me first).
Let us know how Elias is doing.
Get well soon Elias
Awww, poor baby! I wonder if Musher's would help? Definitely get him to the vet, just to be safe. I know when I have a cut on the bottom of my foot it hurts like hell to put any pressure on it.

Hope Elias gets better quickly.
Awwww Elias *smooches*
Abby cut her paw pad a few summers back and we had the same problem. We took her into the vet and he flushed it out really good, and then he used some glue (surgical glue I think?) and then bandaged it up with some vet wrap to keep it clean.

Aww poor Elias. I hope he's better soon.
