Yesterday after playing in the park for about 1 1/2 hours we came home and she rested for a little bit and then was running around in the hall way with my neighbor's yorkie. Well all of the sudden I picked her up and there was blood everywhere!!
It was coming from her paw..the white one.
I couldn't tell if it was the nail or what it was since it was covered in blood so I took her home and put her in the tub and washed it off. She didn't seem to be in pain or anything, she wasn't even limping.
Anyways...what ended up happening, and I don't know how this happened, was that a big chunk of the pad, that thing that makes the paw print, was gone!
It is gross looking and big.
I treated her with the first aid kit and put some antibiotic on it. She was restless last night, I am not sure if she was in pain or what but I was very disturbed to see her like that.
She is at home resting today. No bandage since she couldn't stand that and tore it up.
I definetely recommend this book "The First Aid Companion for Dogs and Cats"-- It is so full of info.
