The other day my boyfriend mentioned that Storm has been licking her feet so much again that it’s begun to bleed. Not uncommon for her; she does it all the time and I stop her whenever I can. Sure enough, I have seen light blood spots on the carpet here and there.
I took her out this morning and she wouldn’t even walk on the one paw that she has been favoring. She just holds it up in the air the whole time.
Once we got inside the apartment, I made her lay down so I could check out her paw. This is what I found:
My poor baby. 😦 I have no idea how to take care of this. So far, I have been putting a paper towel over the foot then placing two sandwich bag over that (I tried just one bag earlier & it easily tore the bag open defeating it’s purpose).
I am also not sure how this happened. I thought that perhaps part of the pad got stuck on the ice then was ripped off? Or can dog allergies get this bad??
