    Default Paw pad torn off

    Hello everyone , my dogs both front center pads (the bigggest pad) are torn off, this happened on 11/30 now its 12/2 and she is still in pain , she tries to not put pressure on her front paws as she walks, what i did is clean the pads with a %50/%50 water and soap , flush and dry, she is an outside dog, so it is going to get a lil dirty, it doesnt look infected and looks like new pads want to appear, does it always take so long to recover , i thought she would be better after a day, to this day she is still uncomfterabale, any suggestions, opinions. Thank you.

    As brindlexpitt said they don't just reappear in a days time LOL.

    Get a product called Facilitator. Wash and dry the pads very good. Cover it with the facilitator. You will have to lay the dog down and LET IT DRY before they walk on it. It is an excellent liquid bandage and will keep it clean and promote healing very good. Apply it daily for a few days (4 or 5) and you should see major improvement by then.

    plus......healing occurs when the wound is dry! washing will hinder the natural scab/new tissue growth process.

    Thanks BoogiemanBlood, I dont need it right now but thought it would be good to have in the medicine cabinet if needed. Till I find it I'll have somebody pick me up some of the New-Skin Spray. A link says Wally world has it.
