Looks like his pads are growing or there's a growth on his pads but a vet will be your best option , keep us posted on how he gets on when u take him

Its on every foot. Just concerned as he seams to slow down a hell of a lot on outside surfaces. Grass hes fine. Hes currently on cod liver oil tablets and a magno collar in case arthritis is setting in but im thinking hes more bothered about his actual feet.

Hmm maybe his pads are growing making it uncomfortable for him , the only thing I can find about pad growth is called hyperkeratosis but it tends to make the feet look furred rather then thick like that , I think the vets is your best bet tbh

Ok from what I can see it can cause thick growths like that too , it's due to the keratin in their paws (can sometimes show up on the nose too) , I would still get a vet diagnosis to be safe and any treatment as it might need 'buffing' off and then vet visits every now n again to keep it from growing back

Will do. Got him some booties lol. May be zinc deficiency induced disorder of keratinization. Seams very close to look and symptoms. Fingers crossed its not sinister, cant imagine him not being around despite him being a completely awkward bugger all his life lol.

So i was right about his feet, zinc deficiency. But they were inflamed and he also has developed a skin and ear infection. Thought whilst he was there to get a blood screening. £147 later we are home! 40891852e13fbb7b414c7fd8c3e693bf.jpg
