    Default Paw pad - Question

    I am fairly new to the forum. I have a question about my 18 month old EB Eli. I got him in July 2012 when he was 7 months old. For as long as he has been with me he has had this yellow and crusty part of his paw pads. It does not seem to bother him at all, he walks and runs just fine, never shows any kind of limp. I have taken him to the vet a few times for a checkup and shots etc. They have never mentioned this as any type of concern. I am a first time pet owner. I thought would see if anyone else has seen or experienced this with their EB's? Are there any home remedies that can be applied here?

    @DaGmen it looks like his pad coloration may just not be black, he does look a little red in between. Check out the link below for a soak for his feet. BTW Great Name for EBN and your bully!!!!!!! (I'm a gmen fan as well)

    Mine have that and it's just from wear and tear...you can put a little balm or Snout Soother or Aquaphor on it with a sock but it's pretty harmless and will likely come back anyway...kind of like a callous on a human foot!

    Completely normal. Some bullies will get more calluses than others. Wilson's front paws on the outer sides will get quite thick. When I do his nails every two weeks, I just dremel that section a bit too. You can use Musher's Secret too. @2BullyMama turned me on to that. I prefer it now over the Snout Soother for the feet as it doesn't leave a greasy feel after it's on. Wilson's way more red than Eli in the in between area. He's constantly in his pool though too and that may be why. I'm not concerned about it at all though.

    Sally has an area on her front pad too that's yellow on the calluses but not nearly as thick as Wilson. Wilson's a front foot dragger so maybe that's why?

    yep... musher's secret will help! Only stuff Banks does not lick off -- she doesn't necessary like it on, but she does leave it there.

    Not sure what I am looking at but it just looks like a callus? You can get snout soother for it or just use aquaphor lotion to soften.
