    Default Hyperkeratosis?

    Hello. I've noticed that Amber (my EBD) has rough paws and they almost look hairy. I've applied coconut oil which helps a bit with the roughness but they're still hairy looking. I've never seen such a thing but when I search online hyperkeratosis pops up. Does anyone have any experience with this? I've also noticed that she has been licking her paws but only at night before bed.

    There is an article here on the site.... Search and it should come up. I'm on phone or i would get the link for you

    Groomer can cut it back but no way to prevent it can only maintain it

    Here is the article: The Pet Help Forum: A Pet Owner's Help & Support Community - Dry Dog Nose or Paw Pads - About Hyperkeratosis in Dogs

    Mine have a small case of this and I've just been trimming it back with scissors as much as I can without hurting them

    I didn't know hyperkeratosis was a thing - I just thought curly's paws were just getting rough. Fortunately it isn't too bad on him either. Thanks for enlightening me!

    Maximus has a severe case of Hyperkeratosis. His back paws are worse than his front paws. The skin is actually "Smushed and mushed" down and sideways. At first, I thought it was infact "hair" that could just be trimmed. I found out later from our Vet that
    it is actually Skin that is part of his pawpads. It is terrible to see and look at, and Yes, I do have to take Maximus to the Vet on a regular 4-6-week schedule to have the 'hairs' trimmed on his pawpads. He also has Hyperkeratosis on his nose, and I use 'Snout Soother' every few days on a regular basis to keep his nose moist.

    So Snout Soother Works? I have been using Vaseline but Rosie keeps licking it off, and runs when I bring it out to put on her nose.

    Snout soother is a good one... i also use Mushers Secret.... one thing to do is wipe/wash the nose with warm cloth before applying-- it open the 'skin' and help the ointment penetrate better.
