Poor dog slashed his pad on glass two weeks ago - he had stitches but despite that the wound has come apart again. We've been keeping it as clean and dry as possible and he's not licking it but it's just not healing . He's on short lead walks at the moment and v fed up but I'm wondering how long it's going to take- any experience?
If he heals anything like my dog I think you will have to stop the walks completely - my dog had a toe amputated , so slightly different but same kind of area ,and it took about 3 weeks of not walking at all before it finally was healed over enough to exercise - we had also had issues with stitches breaking down
He's not quite 2 and very active - he's used to at least 2 hours a day of zipping around being fast and busy. He's such a happy-go-lucky dog I don't want his mental well-being to be affected plus we've been careful to build up his muscle tone to help his hip so I'm worried he'll lose that and store up further problems down the line
