my border collie has a split in his front paw pad. It is not bleeding. He is still running at full speed unless he is on our gravel driveway then he favors it. I called the emergency room and they said they don't need to see him because he is not bleeding. Is there something I should be doing for it?

Hi,Its best to keep it clean and dry until you can see your vet.. The best thing to use is just water to clean ~no soap etc until the vet tells you further..Oh,try to keep him off the gravel if you can.. Hope your companion gets better soon! :)

you could try to wrap it but he might just want to chew it off. I would put some antibiotic salve on it.   neosporen or like that.  He could need antibiotics to clear it up so def make a vet apt.
