Since she’s hopping around more and more I just noticed she seems to be developing sores on the pads of her feet on remaining rear leg. When I noticed them 2 days ago I rinsed her feet off with water and put some neosporin on the sores and coconut oil on the other areas and other feet pads.
We still have snow up here right now and a lot of puddles with icemelt so I’m sure that was drying out her pads really quickly and they already look better today, before they were pink and red 🙁
Anyone else run into this happening on a regular basis and any advice on how to prevent it? I’m not looking forward to trying booties, I don’t think she will take well to them. I have heard people using balloons to cover the feet (and mostly give traction on slippery floors) so I might give that a shot before investing in some booties and see if she will tolerate that at all first.
Here is what they look like today, healing somewhat well:
