Dog with split foot pad

Though some foot pad injuries cannot be prevented, avoiding rough, jagged or hot surfaces as well as protective foot wear can be helpful.
Try gently rinsing the affected foot under cool water to remove any debris, and try an antibacterial ointment or solution like Vetericyn (I use this) or Neosporin. And then, place a non-stick telfa pad over the foot pad and lightly wrap with vet wrap or an ace bandage. The bandage should be kept clean and dry and changed daily until the pads have healed.
