I was walking Phoebe today She stopped to lick her foot and has been limping since. There is no sign of a thorn on her paw and her dew claw seems fine. IS it vet time?

Get a bowl of warm water and dip her paw in to it. Hold it there for a little while just in case something tiny has lodged between the pads. Gently check in between the pads .

Hope it is better tomorrow.

A couple of days ago Oliver started limping badly. Turned out it was a small, hard lump of mud deep between his pads. As Claire said, bathing in warm water can often dissolve it, followed by a little rest to get over the soreness. Grass seeds can get deep between the pads at this time of year as well.

Oz also did this a few weeks ago. Never found any reason for his limping. He also didn't jump as much. I just monitored it, didn't go for walks, and after two days he was fine. I'm thinking he must have pulled something and he knew he just needed some rest.

Pippa is great Cecily. She started agility last week. She's not too bad at it. We were at the last hope day of fun in Navan today. They are both wrecked!
