Injuries to paws are very common, especially with dogs. 

  • Small stones trapped between the pads can be brushed off gently with your hand
  • Remove small thorns out carefully, as close to the skin as possible using tweezers
  • Pavements and roads can become very hot is warm climates, dogs should be exercised early in the morning and late in the evening to avoid possible injury to paws
  • Take care if walking dogs in snowy and icy conditions, snow trapped between pads can cause pain and injury, take care not to walk your dog where heavy salting and gritting has taken place, consider washing their paws in luke-warm water
  • As with all injuries if more serious or if you are concerned, seek advice from your vet.
