Thank you for using Just Answer. My name is Rebecca; I am a veterinarian. Please give me a moment to type my answer.

I am sorry to hear Dusty has a cut between her pads on her foot.

She probably does not need systemic antibiotics for this cut, unless it is very deep or swollen. I would try a topical antibiotic such as Neosporin or Triple Antibiotic on the cut.

I can do that, how about cleaning it with hydrogen peroxide?

anyone there?

Yes, you can clean with peroxide, but it might sting.

I might just clean with soap and water, and use the Neosporin.
