Foot Pad Problem

What can we do about a ripped off front foot pad.  He is a stray but a sweet one. He must have done it chasing a car.  The Vet gave us some spray for it and we thought it would heal over...but it hasn't. Its been about 3 months now. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.    Thanks, LindaTX

It is unusual for a footpad to not heal, and there may be a bacterial or fungal infection, foreign body, immune mediated disease, or other disease preventing healing. I recommend that you have your dog rechecked by your veterinarian, and he may discuss biopsy and cultures, or referral to the veterinary dermatologist in Round Rock TX, Dr. Jenise C.

Good luck,
