I took my baby to a dog day care yesterday for an assessment. We are going out of town for a couple nights and this place has cageless boarding, so we chose to go with it. Anyway, they said Zelda played all day and had a great time. When I arrived at the place to pick her up, of course she was just out of it. She was so tired. As soon as we got home she went to sleep (7:00pm) and didn't get up until 8:00am today. When I tried to get her up to go outside I noticed she was almost walking on her tip toes (back feet). When I inspected her paws, I saw that on the left paw, the big pad was entirely hanging out. It wasn't bleeding though. Her right one wasn't as bad, but she did have some of the pad off on that one too. Of course I took her to the vet, and I also called the place. They said that it does happen to those dogs that don't get out that much. That their pads are so soft and running on the vulcanized rubber floors they had most likely was the problem. Has anyone ever had this happen to there dogs in any given situation? How do I treat this? How to I help her when I know it has to be painful. I feel horrible like she hates me for taking her there. I wonder if she'll want to go back.
