My jack rusell terrior has started to lick her back paw. She is a rescue dog we have had her 3 years and she may be 6 years old. When i looked at her pad it was hard round the edges, in the middle it looks sore and she flinches. Is there any thing I can put on it.

Customer: Ellie
Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Ellie?

Hi there, you are through to Dr Linda. I'm sorry to hear Ellie has a poorly paw.

How long has it been like this?

Is she limping at all?

Would you be able to send a photo?
