Default Help! Bleeding paws

Help! A friend let his dog run behind his bike for a while.. as he does more
often as the dog is pretty hyper.. she didn't give a peep but when he got
home all 4 of her paws were bleeding. He usually runs her on dirt paths but
this time he rode on asphalt. Can anyone tell me how serious that is? Does
it need to be cleaned out? Does she need to see a vet or can he clean it and
take care of it himself? And what's best to clean and care for it with?

Thanks!
Volance

Oh dear. First tell your friend that a dog will be loyal to the extreme and
follow his master anywhere, including behind a bike on asphalt. The dog
probably should be seen by a vet to rule out the need for sutures and maybe
to get some preventive antibiotics. Dogs pads do bleed heavily, even with
minor lacerations, and it can be quite scary. Good luck.

Hi Volance,

In Canada, we have strict laws against what your friend is doin'. I
understand the situation with her behaviour but, where I come from, that's

a
very serious offense. Until a dog can ride a bike, then, walk with her.

jobo :-}


The OP did say a short while and so long as the dog is fully grown and
active, I've read a fair bit for some breeds that actually recommend it. My
breeder exercises her weims on a bike but then that is through fields and
forest land and not on a road surface.... I was pretty much planning on
doing the same when my pup is old enough.

it depends on the extent of bleeding. no activity for the dog till
healed. wash paws in warm water, dry, then use hydrogen peroxide for
coagulation. and get other opinions... check websites... jess.
