• What do you do when your dog has a cut on his paw?

    I recommend that you take him into see your veterinarian as soon as possible. A cut on the paw can be a serious concern. If the cut is deep enough it can affect the tendons and ligaments in the foot. Also cuts on the paws have a high likelihood of becoming infected.

    Your veterinarian can examine the cut paw for any signs of damage and infection. The treatment that he needs will vary depending on the what your veterinarian finds during the exam.
