Hi!
I mentioned this in my earlier grooming post.....but I'll mention it, as I need a solution.

My poor Lady when at the groomers, her 3 paws were cut....it seems like they got too close with the clippers and nicked her paws.

They did NOT mention this to us, even tho she for sure must have been bleeding at the groomers....I understand mistakes happen, but let me know about it!! and 3 out of her 4 paws....really.

Anyway. So sunday is when we noticed that she had come in from playing with her friend Harley, and her paws were bleeding, there was a small trail from the door, and onto the couches.
We cleaned her up, and it stoped.

Then I have been soaking her paws, as I was afraid of it being on her paws and an infection.

Now she was playing this morning with her other friend Jack, and when she came inside her back two paws were bleeding again.

Poor girl, I had to wash her up, and put her in her crate till they stopped, as she went running upstairs on my cream carpets, onto my cream couches....and all over the floor.


I don't know what to do to make these wounds heal up.

Keep them dry get some wood powder and once you have cleaned them and dried them use the wood powder to help dray out her paws.


are the grazed or cut.


but defonetly keep them dry let them scab over.

I can see one of the pads has a small chunk out....it's not deep, but a chunk none the less....and the others it's inbetween her pads, and looks like they have skinned them.....poor thing, I guess because she has hairy feet they didn't realize?
I don't know...

What is wood powder??

some groomers use scissors on the paws in stead of clippers. but i think if they had cut her they would have known about it, the paws bleed so easily, so i very much doubt they didnt know about it.

the groomer got back to me...the owner, not the person who groomed her, they are saying it is not anything they did, and that they think she could have a fungus causing the bleeding........they want to see her.......there are chunks out of her pads, not deep or huge.....but about the circumference of a regular pencil lead.....and on 3 paws!!!! come on a fungus!!!! I dont think so

I'd demand that the groom is free. I'd also look very closely at this groomers record, if they are not great in your eyes, I'd look for another. Sometimes a nick is unavoidable, I do it too sometimes. But THREE?

For the healing, stop letting her run around outside off lead is your best bet. Leashed walks, no outdoor freedom. They should heal soon at least! :)

Poor Lady. It makes me sad to think about her bleeding every time she plays and mad that the groomer didn't tell you! Then she denies blames and says it's a fungus??? Um wouldn't they have noticed a fungus when they groomed her and told you about it then?

I have no advice for you since you a far more of a doggy expert than me, but i really hope they heal quickly.

I would take her to ur vet and ask them if it's a fungus then go to the groomers. The thing is dogs are wriggly, well my wee Maggie is anyway! That's why I send her to a groomer. I fully accept that nicks and geazes can happen and in some cases are almost enevitable, however what I would not accept is a groomer not telling me when it does happen. Maggies first groom age had two fairly big grazes which I didn't notice until we got home, so this time I used a different groomer and she didn't get a single nick. Let us know how it goes with the groomer. Emma x
