Our English Springer Spaniel was favoring his paw. Upon massaging/squezzing it (to find the root cause) it burst (combination pus and blood). A couple of days later, it was white in color with a tear. Now it is red in color with the same tear. He isn't limping (been hunting nonetheless) but I am concerned that it is not healing. I have been putting betadine on it but no reaction. Please advise.
Thanks in advance.
Lacerations on the paw pads usually need to be treated with stiches and antibiotics. Have your vet check it out esp. since you have a very active dog. vetcare
