Mild pad cracks
Our new dog Sawney is getting on really well. He's enjoying having a nice life and he's behaving pretty well!
However, since we first adopted him I thought his paw pads looked in poor nick. He'd had some really rough living and they were the least of his problems at the time, and the vet kind of brushed off my concerns about them. She said all he needed was some soft living. But now they're bothering him a bit and I just caught him limping. Now he's sitting on his cushion licking his paws.
I've uploaded a few pictures of his paws so you can see what they look like.
They're not bleeding, just starting to crack. Can anyone give me any tips on how to stop them getting worse, and hopefully make them better?
(Of course I will take him to the vet if they get bad/worse, but like I said, when I pointed them out to her the first time she basically insinuated I was being overly fussy -_- )
Thanks for your time.
