    Two Hurt feet

    Post  Hunter on Mon Feb 20, 2012 3:23 am

    Tough weekend I have one dog with a toenail popped up
    and another with a big cut on pad. Any suggetions on
    things I can do other than waiting I heard that some of the
    foot coating liquids can be bad for dogs.

    Hunter,
    They"ll be fine....Just paint thier feet blue with blue-kote....They'll heal up, just rest em' for a bit...Nail takes a bit longer to heal but grows back just fine......They're tougher then ya think......

    I wouldn't use blue coat,it says not to let dog lick it.Like that's gonna happen.Blue coat has been known to kill dogs.It makes their throat raw and they will not eat.I have used Tuf foot but it dries the feet out.Use it on the pads it's ok for a toughener.Try Hooflex in the liquid form.Keeps foot moist after running in a crust and is anti fungal and anti bacterial.I use it the night before i run.Just think, how long will your hands be workable if they're dry and cracked.Would you want to dry them out more or moisturize them.Guess it should work on foot fungus as it says.Used it before and it is super as a moisturizer.
