blown pads question

Postby Coonsbware » Sun Aug 08, 2010 6:36 pm

I have a female that is having big problems with blowing her pads out darn near every race. She had a litter of pups four months ago and not sure if that has anything to do with it or not; bug she didn't seem to seem to have this problem before. Granted she was layed up for awhile but she's in decent shape with the exception of her pads.

Any explanations? Suggestion or ideas that help this? Solutions?

get some kopper tox and put it on her pad's. Make sure the kopper tox is dry before letting her run around.

treat her like a new dog. with a long lay off pads soften, she will need to slowly rebuild her pad stamina.

Do you keep her on the ground or on concrete? Dogs that are kept on the ground always seem to have tougher feet. I think the minerals in the dirt do their feet alot of good

Run her on steep rocky hills, when the dogs go down hill it spreads thier feet out and really does a good job on making them have tough feet, but you do have to give her time for her pads to heal before you try, but after a couple times they should toughen up.
