    Default I need some help!

    Hi All! So Winston is having some problems with the pads on his paws. It has been happening on and off for the past few months. He keeps cracking/cutting them on things when he goes outside and runs around crazy. Unfortunately I do not notice until he is walking all over the floor/furniture and bleeding. I thought I had it under control until this morning he went to lay down on my bed and as hes walking across it I see all these little blood spots. Sure enough he has another cut on his toe. He is not bleeding a lot but enough that I had to strip the bed and what not. I put Aquaphor on his paws a couple of times a week and have recently started doing Epsom salt soaks. What else can I do?? What causes this?? I feel terrible becuase I could not let him on my bed this morning He always lays there while I am getting ready for work but he was still bleeding. I just want my baby to be better! How can I heal these quickly so he stops opening them back up! Thanks for any help!!

    Try not doing the soaks. Water dries things out. Or if you continue the soaks make sure you moisturize after.

    Would booties help until his pads are healed?

    I wouldnt put ANYTHING on his feet... let them toughen up... Im sure the Aquaphor is softening them.

    This is a very good point! Thank you! Do you think this one he has now will heal up on its own then?? Or is there something else I can use to heal the part the he keeps opening back up now?

    A little antiseptic cream to stave off infection should be all you need.
