It's always something.......
We look the boys on an off leash hike at a park near us. Most of the hike is on gravel or asphault. A bit after we got home Wyatt was limping. URGH. I figured he tore a muscle or something. The next morning we found a nice chuck of his paw pad missing. I've been putting antibiotic ointment on it, hoping it heals quickly. We are going on vacation in less than 3 weeks and I'd love for him to be 100%!

OUCH!!!!!!!!!! Oh man, that's gotta hurt. Keep putting neo on it. You should probably cover it with something when he goes out, until it heals. Not sure what though, a sock maybe? Or buy a dog bootie.

Ouch! It looks painful, hopefully it heals up soon!

Ouch, that looks like it hurts..good thoughts for your pup
Ouch! Poor guy
Jake did the same thing about two years ago, his was about the size of a quarter, looked like someone took a melon-baller and scooped out a chunk of his pad. I didn't do anything to it aside from check to make sure it was clean and not infected (he just licked neosporin off) - and it healed within a week. So your boy will hopefully be good to go for vacation!!

Poor Wyatt. I hope he gets better before vacation!
