Raised Meaty Red Spot Beside Paw Pad
(Townsville Queensland, Australia)
My almost 2 year old Great Dane that weighs 56KGS has recently presented with a red meaty lump on her paw right beside her pad. It is a little tender and she has licked it to the point that it is bleeding.
It is almost like her pads are 'peeling' off from the corners. It is very tissue-like in appearance. It is not like a blister and does not present like a bite or splinter.
She is showing the same symptoms in the other foot though not quite as severe.
I have treated with Salvol up until recently I have used Neocort of which I had in the 'animal first aid kit'.
The Neocort has helped in the appearance of the lumps though the dog is still licking to the point of bleeding and re bandaging is needed.
I have a history in my other dog of folliculitis but this has never been present in this dog.
This dog has had a recent tick but treatment has been provided and no other tick was found on the dog other that the original tick found on her neck.
This dog has a history of Hypertrophic Dystrophy to a severe category.
This dog does jump on a fence that has nails and splintered wood and although there is no evidence of splinters I am mentioning this. This behaviour is rectified when we are home and is very minimal in occurrence.
