Default Carpal pad?





Anyone have any experience with a torn/ cut pad? 3 weeks ago she sliced hers pretty good . Just was a flap hanging, vet stiched and was looking good and had kept her quite till just now. Front opened back up leaving a small flap .
Guess I'm wondering if some won't stay will the,scar tissue hold up to the abuse it takes from a working dog .
Waiting for vet to call back now.

Make sure they collar her so she can't lick it. I had to have my dog stiched a second time due to the vet not putting a head collar on

A few years back my dog jumped on top of an expanded metal shelf and then knocked it over and tore two nails off and split his pad between them and my bet just had me put flour on it if it ever started bleeding and to cover it with a sock. My dog never messed with it but I guess it depends on the dog.

My lab cut hers and she had to wear the cone of shame. Wouldn't leave the stitches alone. Changed out the dressings every day and she healed up nicely. I also bought the foot boots for a while just to make sure everything was fine. Good luck and hope all goes well!

It's was on the pad between foot and elbow.
Most of it held fine except for the front edge. Didn't appear that stiching was going to do any good ,so he just cut the flap off so it wouldnt catch on stuff. Says it will scar over and be fine.
No collar for now just keeping it wrapped. So far she's left that alone.
