| | Very odd.
Hard to say the cause, but a change from black to red is pretty radical, & even tho it's calmed down & gone pink, i'd be worried until i could get a vet's eyes on it.
Paw pads are very important structurally, & i can't imagine why ONE pad would be worn by friction so much that it changed color completely, yet 4 other pads on the same paw, are still black.
??? - that's just odd, & not easy to explain. // Friction from rough surfaces would affect all the pads on the foot, & *Both* feet, at least, if not ALL 4 feet.
One pad changing color radically is just weird, & not in a good way, IME.
Hopefully it's already resolving, she got a bite?, some other injury, & the pink color indicates it's not as 'angry'. // Is it hot, or warmer to touch than her other pads? [I'd wear disposable gloves for this test, as U don't know what she tread in /on, nor if there is any discharge that might be infectious - to her other feet, or to U / anyone else.]
paws crossed, it's simple & healing - let us know what the vet says, please?
