Our pets run through all sorts of stuff from stones, to broken pieces of glass.  You name it. 


If your  pet is favoring a foot take a look at it to make sure it is not a deep  cut.  If it is a deep cut take your pet to the vet so that it can be  treated.  

Tiny cuts can be treated with an antiseptic ointment like Panalog or Dermavet. Wrap  some gauze around the paw and cover with a  sock. This helps to prevent  your pet from licking at the wound.

If you still  can not find the splinter or what ever is in the paw, soak the foot for  about 20 minutes in very warm salt water or Epson Salt. 

You will want  it to be as salty as sea water.  The salt draws the puss and infection  out of the sore.  Do this 3 times a day until you see some results. 

Usually this treatment will help pull the infection out and calm the area so you can find the splinter and heal it.

If your dog can not stand the salt water or the cut is very painful, use Epson Salts instead.
