Dr. Michael Salkin Only Please, Hi Dr, I know you missed me, lol Zoey has hyperkeratosis on her back paw pads. I asked the vet about removing it and he said to just leave it because it can make the area sore. I am only concerned with one area, she bites at it and the "hairs" are hanging over the edge of her paw. It's creating a red spot that has by now toughened up. My question is, I have read that there is no feeling in the "hairs,". Can I trim it just where it's hanging over the edge of her paw? It would be only a mm. thanks, Lisa
