Paw and Claw care
When paws are affected with an ailment the paw pads are often affected, inter digital spaces or claws and the nail beds. These ailments may be caused by parasitic, fungal or bacterial infections, mechanical injury, burns, and chemicals, particularly salt in winter or allergic reactions. Allergies often cause itching, which is accompanied by inflammation due to yeast and secondary bacterial infections. Scabs and fluid filled blisters form on the pads and toes. Nails affected by dermatophytes are often distorted, brittle and eventually fall off. If the claw is affected by bacteria the bed becomes red, swollen and pus forms. All of these ailments are very painful for the animal and often cause problems with walking and nervousness. Individual animals can be seen licking and scratching, which leads to the affected area becoming worse and the infection may spread to healthy tissues throughout the body thus worsening the infection.
