I have a little doxie male, he is a total inside dog, only goes outside to use the potty. I noticed on his two back feet that his paws are spreading and cracking. It looks like a cauliflower. It is not a sore or wound, just cracked and spread. I have no idea what this is, I have never seen this before. Does anyone out there have any idea what it is and how I can treat it myself? Any input would be much appreciated.
we are not vets and can not diagnose your dog. i would reccomend that you see a vet as soon as possible. in the meantime, vaseline intensive care lotion works wonders on dry cracked skin. i would soak his feet in warm water. then massage some lotion on his feet and between his toes. if you dont have vaseline intensive care, use something with aloe vera. then put some booties on them until you can have him seen by a vet. the sooner the better.
I think you should take it to the pets doctors. By the way,are you playing games. I always play Pirate Legend(http://legend.risengame.com), after my dog in sleep. Dogs are our friends, we should threat them as a child.
