    I was walking her, and my husband was walking Legend this evening. I heard her yelp and couldn't figure out what happened. I looked back on the sidewalk (asphalt) and didn't see any stinging bug of any kind. When we resumed walking, she wouldn't put weight on her paw. I held it to look at it more closely, and she had a TACK stuck in the middle pad! Once I pulled it out, she appeared ok and didn't compensate for it. We had another half mile til we got home. So far everything seems fine. There was no sign of the puncture. Do dogs need tetanus shots? I know that is a dumb question.

    Wow, that must've hurt for sure.

    Generally dogs don't need tetanus shots, but YES they can and do get tetanus. I'd call your vet and discuss it.

    Sure hope she will be fine.
