Torn/ Cracked Pads From Running Can't Post

It isn't really hot here and my dog has every opportunity to run on pavement or grass where I live on out trips. The last two days I took her off leash and let her run beside me as I pulled my daughter in a bike trailer. Normally this same run is done with me on foot. Her towing me the first half at least.

My wife saw that she was limping and I noticed she was slower towards the end of the 2nd three mile run in as many days. There were two brief stops for water.

That evening I saw her licking her paws and saw that one paw was blistered open like I get if I run in a bad pair of shoes. It was torn open so that almost 1/2 of her front paws was a flap of skin with a bit of dirt scooped into the pokect that was formed. Gently I took a razor and trimed the loose skin to keep it from catching, and clean out the dirt. Her other paws had much minor conditions, two other pads needed similar attention. Never any bleeding, just the more tender appearance of skin like a human blister underneath.

What else should I do? Clean daily, inspect. No running for a week or two? What salves should be used? Or keep clean and let her own licking take care of it?

Thanks. She is a black lab mix that takes a lot of well meant smoothering from my daughter with narley a yipe and never a growl. Her name is LADY.

hi!!
kinna odd to reply an old post.can't blame me..i'm new around and i wanna share with you a remedy that might help.

before and after walking my dogs, i would clean their pads(is that what you call it or is there another word for it) and then apply a little bit of petroleum jelly/vaselin. it helps to smoothen and prevent cracked pads.

i hope it helps..good luck

Yes, I agree with icezcream cos I ever tried to used vaseline on Ryan to help to relieved the cracked pads, it works!!! After only a few days, you will notice the pad became soften so give it a try!!!
