NLR so posting here. My friend needs help with her dog!

They were at the dog park today and afterwards their dog started limping. They looked at her paws and noticed that both front pads have bits ripped off them so she has big round raw circles and she's limping and licking at them.
Anyone have any suggestions to help them? They rang the vet and all the vet said was to take her in for observation so I though I'd ask you lovely folk first.

thanks so much!
Cheers Sarah

Happened to Hannah the first summer I had her........all four were rubbed raw (running around on a hot tennis court.......oh stupid humommie!)

I was given an antibiotic spray that also deadened pain too I believe (from the vet).....& not "given", trust me.....I had to pay through the nose for it! I think Bactine or neosporin spray would probably do just as well.

I put on baby socks & then dog boots (socks made it harder for them to be pulled off by you-know-who).....& I had to restrict her walks/runs for a few days.

Amazingly, it was on the second day that I could see the leathery stuff was starting to grow back & cover her pads.....so it really only took a few days.:)
