    Swollen Toe, Dry Paw Pad (Flaking) & Nose

    Hi Everyone,
    I have a female GSP that is 9 months old. I am concerned because her toe is very swollen and her paw pad is falling off. First her toe was swollen and then I noticed the paw pad flaking off. It seemed to not be bothering her until tonight. Her toe is now bleeding and she keeps licking it. Also I am not sure if this could be related at all but her nose has always been dry, ever since she was a puppy and all of her paw pads seem dry as well. I asked the vet about the dry nose when I last took her in and he did not seem to be concerned. I attached photos. Please if anyone has any clue what is going on or home remedies it would be greatly appreciated.

    It looks as though its infected. Please take her to the vet for treatment.

    I do not think that anyone on a messageboard can help - and I agree with what has been said, please take your pup to the vet because we cannot help you here.

    I hope your pup is OK but only a vet can diagnose and/or treat infections.

    I would be concerned if this was my dog, and think that I would get a second opinion from a different vet. You could try using a little coconut oil to moisturise her nose pad, but her toes need treating professionally.
