Pads on Feet - Overgrowth
Has anyone had problems with the pads on the front feet getting a funges of some kind on theme and causing the pads to get a hard growth on them. When Sable tries to chew them they get really soft (almost hairy like) and I can clip it off but when dry it is hard as can be. A vet tech told me there was nothing to prevent it and that I could file it off. I've tried filing it but it doesn't work. It is pushing her toes so close together it rubbing a blister. If no one here has any suggestions, guess the vet is the next stop. Vet tech said as dogs get older it just happens and sometimes happens on the nose too.
