Dog Paw Health Tips: 7 Things You Need To Know


Care for cuts and scrapes

Even the sharpest-eyed puppy parent can’t stop their dogs from getting into trouble all the time.

Your dog will most likely get a cut or a scrape on their paw at some point.

When they do, it’s important to keep in mind that your dog will often take their cue from you.

A calm and relaxed response to a problem will often help keep your pooch calm too.

Cuts on dogs are treated just like a cut on a human.


Wash it with some warm water and antiseptic soap, then keep it dry.

A vet should see deep cuts, but minor cuts and scrapes are easily handled at home.

Do your best to bandage it and keep your dog from fussing at it.
