Kona had a sore pad once, and I tried bandaging it, but she just kept chewing it off. I didn't know what to do so I just kept her mouth busy with fresh bones and then I would rub neosporin on it. I also took her for lots of car rides, because she would sit still in the car but get a chance to get out of the house. No fun, I hope Cole is feeling better soon!

I have to take care of myself first, to be able to take care of the people I love.

I started Sparkpeople on 5/9/08 at 205 lbs. My ticker shows my start weight as 209 which was my highest weight in late April.

Coleismysoul, I didn't know that tea tree oil is toxic to cats! I use it on my horse all the time, and one of the dogs' ear remedies has it as an ingredient. I used it on Jasmine's foot when she had her biopsy, to keep her from chewing the bandage. It worked great for that, but I would definitely check into the toxicity for dogs before using it again.

I found this helpful link on tea tree oil: fiascofarm.com/herbs/teatree.htm
There is a section about using tea tree oil on pets at the bottom of the page.

Cole is very sad as he can't go out and play. It keeps aggravating the pad. I know tea tree oil is toxic to cats. Does it come in a special mix for dogs?

Thanks for the wishes. He wishes he was better, too!

Ouch! Poor Cole. I am very sorry, I don't have any experience with cuts except on horses. Have you called your vet for advice?

Karma skinned her pads at the cottage, when we foolishly threw her frisbee on our walk along a roughly paved road. She was limping for several days. We just let nature take its course.

To prevent infection, I would put Tea Tree Oil on the cut. This is an excellent natural antiseptic and antifungal agent. If it is really bad, you may want to wrap it with gauze and vetwrap when he needs to walk around. It probably will heal better when exposed to air though, so I would take off the bandages at night or when he is just lazing around the house. Use Tea Tree Oil on the bandage to keep him from chewing it. Dogs hate the smell of it!

Anyone have a good remedy for a cut pad? Cole was outside playing and cut his pad open. It is giving him trouble going down the stairs especially.
