    Question Raw Puppy Pads :-/

    This past week I brought home a 6-month-old pup from Alabama. We have snow/ice here and her pads are raw and this morning they were bleeding.

    I know they just need to toughen up but in the meantime, how can I help her? I heard about Musher's Secret, which I am going to order online, but need an immediate solution in the meantime.

    I'm resisting getting doggie snow boots because my guess is that she will just fling them off and/or chew on them and I dont want to waste 30+ dollars.

    Vet wrap? Or am I underestimating a good set of booties?

    TIA!

    She can't chew the boots off if she's in motion. Put the boots on and take her outside immediately for a walk or a game of fetch. With enough distraction she'll forget she's wearing them. If they fit well and you tighten them properly she won't fling them off.
