Default Poor pup. He tore up his foot pads

Yesterday afternoon. One is really bad. We sprayed some stuff my son got to help with infection and hub wrapped one in coban.
I FEEL HORRIBLE!
He was having so much fun. Hub was tossing the ball in the street for him, when one of the neighbor kids who is super little got involved. Of course my hub called me and my son out to intervene. (hub has no contact with minors) so my son goes down there and the little one wanted to toss the ball.
Ricky (the dog) was SOOOOO good with the little kids. The little kids even littler brother also came out. I was surprised at how the dog was so careful around them. Its like he knew.....dont run into them. He was dropping the ball near their feet so they could toss it again.

I started noticing a slight limp. I said, ok thats enough.
I about fainted when I saw how torn up one of them is. (the one hub wrapped)
He went out once last night and just layed down. I picked him up and brought him in the house, and on the couch. At some point he went into his kennel, and later in the evening, he went into my room and slept. He's still there.
I have to work all day all week. Hub works today as well as son.

Anyone have this happen to their dogs?
Of course if it looks like its getting infected he's going to the vet, and work be damned. I just hope to get thru today.
I wish the dog would run easy on the asphalt.
NEVER EVER AGAIN IS HE RUNNING ON THE ROAD. Ever.
I feel awful.

Pads toughen up. They callus.Run him on the asphalt, on gravel, on hard dirt, just keep it limited for a while.

I've had my dogs cut their pads, get pads eaten away by anti-icing chemicals, pick up thorns, various other problems, but it's never become a vet-worthy problem.

Aww, poor thing!

Nims, right, though. He's better off being exposed to different surfaces so his pads toughen up a bit. Just maybe not so much at one shot.

Here we worry about burns and plant spines embedding. It will be 110+ this next week and that pavement gets insanely hot. They suggest putting your hand down on the ground and if you can't hold it there for 10 seconds it's too hot for your pets to walk on safely.

Hope he heals up quick and is back to playing soon!

Poor puppy! He'll heal up and be back on his feet in no time!

Mia I blistered my feet walking home from a friends house barefoot one summer as a kid. It was awful, excruciating. The pavement is already too hot many days. My daughter never wants to wear shoes and ends up saying "hold me I don't want to burn my feet off".....

Oh SW, poor pup!!! My Rockstar suffers from pad problems sometimes. He just cleans them and limps for a day or two.

I talked to this lady with a pet supply shop that used to be on my route.
She suggested a few products to try. One sounds like some sort of wax to help once his pads heal a bit to protect them from hurting the new pads.
the other one is supposed to be used for things like when its freezing (which here it never is THAT cold and if it is, I tell ya we are not outside lol)

Not sure I'll need those and instead not run him on the asphalt. He just goes crazy chasing the ball....he bobs and weaves and skids. that is probably how he buggard them up in the first place.

He was doing better yesterday. We keep spraying the soothing stuff on them, and are trying to keep him calm. He was walking a bit, and we took off the wraps and the one looks better than it did.
It was just really jarring to see my young dog not wanting to move, or walk.
He knows he's hurt and is allowing us to wrap and spray and check out his sore feet without much resistance.

If it was me, I would try the wax. Glad that he's letting you take care of him and that he realises that he is hurt. My big boy still bounces around even if he is limping on one foot!!

we are still being careful with him. He's pretty much back to *normal* but we are not taking any chances. He's still licking like crazy sometimes ( I think when he gets bored)
Since its been unreally hot (109 yesterday!)
we are not walking him in the street unless its shaded.
We did fill his *pool* yesterday, and sprayed him with the hose (which he LOVES)
so we are all sort of taking it easy. I'll take him in a bit to the park. Its still fairly cool now......(especially in comparison to yesterday!)
He is doing much better! So thanks for listening to me be a nervous dog mom.

A bit off topic, but since we're in a heat wave (116 today), too, I'm going to get Yoli a pool. Did your dog take to it right away or was there some "teaching" involved? My last dog wanted nothing to do with them. Loved sprinklers, but pooled water was a no-go.

I'm glad your pup is recovering! It's always scary when they have something go sideways with their bodies.

He loves the water. Always has. He would splash in his water dish.
So its not anything we had to teach him.
We didnt invest in a plastic kiddie pool, but opted for a heavier plastic thing they use to mix concrete in.
(like this but bigger https://jet.com/product/detail/9ae78...8-61b6a84b63a7)
this is a smaller one, I think the one we have we originally bought to be able to bath him. We never expected him to be so *into* water. lol.

He will try to drag it (he cant due to size) but he puts in effort to try to. So teeth marks on the edges. He sits on it. with is butt hanging off the edge.
Its hilarious.
He barks at the water, splashes in it. Lays down.
And he just loves it when you hose him. He jumps up, bites at the water, runs away, runs back. Also rather hilarious. I'll see if I can find this pic of him sitting on the edge of the puppy pool at daycare.
Ug. Its in my phone. I'll have to try to get it.

Well, shoot. I don't think mine will be donning her swim cap any time soon. Bought a little 41" pool, even put a towel in the bottom so it wasn't slippery. Noooope. Just stayed about 10' away from it while we were out the first time. Second time she approached and took a drink.

I'll leave it out there and see what happens, but so far it's not winning her over.
