Welcome to Just Answer. I'm Dr Gregg, a licensed veterinarian. I will try to help you today
Sorry your dog's having problems. What's her name?
Thanks for that. Unless the cut on the pad is deep and bleeding they usually do fine with no treatment. Is it deep?
I would be more concerned about the eye
I need to look closer... it was bleeding mildly when I first saw it... I will be right back
IM still here
should i stay here or check the pad?
she's on the other end ogf the house
Check the pad, I'm not going anywhere
actually, her eye looks better.... her pad is almost completely severed ..... its still attached by about 1/4 to 1/2 inch
But it s not bleeding..... the pad is not bleeding..
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?
a deep wedge
maybe more like a medium flap... not wedge
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.
As far as her eye, is she still squinting?
should i cleanse it fiirst
she is not squinting
Probably best to do minimal cleaning for now, it has got to hurt.
this is the highest pad , the one at wrist area
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.
thankyou, i'll take her to the vet
