Thread: paws....

  1. #1

    Default paws....

    Hi everyone. We noticed Winston really licking one paw, it was pink and irritated. He did not like me investigating! ! My oldest son helped me by rubbing Winstons belly. I found this black stuff in the folds of his paw pads. (Winston is a 6 yr old we just rescued two and a half weeks ago who was not in the best of shape, lots of infections) I had my son take a picture of it. Is this normal? Should we be cleaning them regularly? Our other bully is almost a year and had nothing like this. He is now snoring away since I q-tipped it out. It was like black muck. -uploadfromtaptalk1410829095061-jpg

    Weird. We found the same black stuff in Blue's paw a few days ago. He was also licking it constantly, and still is. We cleaned it out too, but I'm also wondering what it was.
    He's also favoring it. Doesn't like us touching that paw.

    That is weird! Interesting too. Wonder what it is. It almost looked like the same icky stuff we got out of his ears when we first got him. :/ poor bully babies!!

    Could be dirt or it could be dried blood. I'd clean it out and get his attention of it when he starts licking it.

    Thank you @dolphin. He goes to vet again Wednesday to see if all his meds have helped him these past two weeks, and have his vision checked for possible blindness. Will let you all know what she says about the paw muck etc.

    Looks like yeast, I've had this happen a few times over the years. I clean it with malacetic and then put some panalog in there and it goes away.

    Other options are several paw soak in beta dyne and water mix, or chlorahexidine & water mix.
