Locomotive system affections

All healthy dogs like to run. When their movement rhythm alters, experts talk about paralysis; its causes are difficult to determine.

A thorn in the pads
The dog doesn't place a foot firmly or moans when doing it. Possibly he has a thorn, a glass fragment or something similar, stuck in his pads. Before checking carefully, examine if paralyzation is really due to a leg's injury.

For this purpose, start grabbing a healthy leg, and press it strongly several times. The dog will get scared at the beginning, but he will get use to the pressure and won't shake. Then grab the supposed injured leg, and press quick and strongly. Do you notice a painful reaction? In that cause search the strange body, which sometimes is not easy? If you find it, take it away with clamps.

Injuries in pads: Examining pads closely, you have discovered, maybe, some injury. Open wounds must be treated quickly, and even sutured by the vet. In fact injuries in pads are always wrongly cured, cause the tissue has few sanguine irrigation.

In case of minor injuries, you can bandage the foot. It's convenient to fill with cottonthe inter digital spaces, cause the animal sweats through them, and after applying some powder, wrapped up the leg with a gauze bandage.

More important than the bandage, is to apply a final isolating tape. This is important so the dog won't take away the bandage with his teeth. A couple of lotion drops over the bandage will help, because that odor is repulsive for dogs. The best protection against biting is a plastic neck you can buy at specialized shops.
