Dr. Gregg :

Welcome to Just Answer. I'm Dr Gregg, a licensed veterinarian. I will try to help you today

Dr. Gregg :

Sorry your dog's having problems. What's her name?

Customer:

Goldie

Dr. Gregg :

Thanks for that. Unless the cut on the pad is deep and bleeding they usually do fine with no treatment. Is it deep?

Dr. Gregg :

I would be more concerned about the eye

Customer:

I need to look closer... it was bleeding mildly when I first saw it... I will be right back

Customer:

IM still here

Dr. Gregg :

Good

Customer:

should i stay here or check the pad?

Customer:

she's on the other end ogf the house

Dr. Gregg :

Check the pad, I'm not going anywhere

Customer:

actually, her eye looks better.... her pad is almost completely severed ..... its still attached by about 1/4 to 1/2 inch

Customer:

But it s not bleeding..... the pad is not bleeding..

Dr. Gregg :

In that case you will want your vet to take a look. Pads are rarely sutured but in this case it may be needed. Is a small flap cut off or a deep wedge?

Customer:

a deep wedge

Customer:

maybe more like a medium flap... not wedge

Dr. Gregg :

Yea, sounds like a surgical problem. Don't want to loose a big hunk of pad. For now you can use a LOOSE bandage on the foot or just tape a sock on with some loose masking tape.

Dr. Gregg :

As far as her eye, is she still squinting?

Customer:

should i cleanse it fiirst

Customer:

she is not squinting

Dr. Gregg :

Probably best to do minimal cleaning for now, it has got to hurt.

Customer:

this is the highest pad , the one at wrist area

Dr. Gregg :

No squinting is good, but when you see your vet have him take a look and stain the cornea to be sure there is not an ulcer there.

Customer:

thankyou, i'll take her to the vet
