┐Have you got any clue of the reason why your dog has this in his paw? When you say you can't put any pressure in the area, ┐are you meaning that if you do that he's in pain?

It seems that he may had his paw trapped in some sort of wire, or something similar, and when he tried to release his paw, it pulled his hair off. (just an hypotesis).

Are you anywhere, where someone has snap traps put out, like the big rat traps, or even fur-bearing traps? I'm in Idaho, and there are legal and illegal snap trap lines in some areas, so people have to be careful about their dogs getting caught in them.

Exclamation Uh-oh.



As Stormy said, i would suspect a trap - or possibly a wire snare, which - so far as i know - are not legal in the USA for fur-trapping or game-taking, but that doesn't mean no-one puts them out.

Leghold traps are spozed to have the trapper's tag on them & be checked at least once every 24-hrs; the longer an animal is left in the trap, the more likely they are to wring-off or gnaw-off a limb & escape, often to die slowly, or they are killed by a predator while they are trapped & helpless to escape.

Snares are used by biologists & wildlife researchers to collect data, tag, or radio-collar wildlife, but they are religious about checking snares frequently - they don't want any animal to escape B4 they get the data they need; age / wt / sex / DNA / blood sample / _____ .

Was Ur dog missing at any time? -- Does he roam at large, sometimes or often?
Is it remotely possible that someone set a snare or trap on Ur own property?

It's also possible that it was an accident - he caught his foot in a loop of [something], electric cable, bungie cord, fence wire, who-knows-what, PULLED BACK, & it closed on the paw.
His paw may have been injured by continuous pressure, a sudden traumatic impact, or a tourniquet-like loop that shut-off the circulation of blood.

Hopefully if there was a circulatory interruption, it was brief, & there is very little tissue-damage. // I'd get him in ASAP - tissue damage from circulatory halts can sometimes be LESSENED, if it's treated quickly.

Please let us know what the vet says? -- it may not look like much, but such internal injuries can be a lot worse than their external appearance.
I'm worried.

Question what did the vet say? -- Has he improved?



it's been 5 days since the initial post - Is there an update, @Mk71681 ?
Hoping he's much-more comfortable, & will soon be fully mobile!

The trap/snare scenario seems pretty plausible, I'd be interested as to the outcome as well.

I'm not a trapper but it does seem the use of snares is legal in certain states of the USA.

And still waiting on that update, btw is it possible that he somehow tripped and developed somekind of sprain (I know this is very very very unlikely.)
