Yesterday during our morning cuddles, I noticed that Cooper's front left foot pad had a chunk of skin peeling off from the inside edge. It looks like a peeling callous.
It's not an open wound, and he's not favoring it. Our vet is closed today, but we have an appointment for Saturday.
Cooper has had fairly rough foot pads since we got him a year ago, and I attributed it to him being a stray before. They have gotten a little better over time.
Anyone else experienced this? Could it just be old rough skin coming off? Would paw wax prevent this from happening in the future?
