We are on holiday and tess has the skin peeling from some of her pads on her feet. We are rubbing antiseptic cream on them which seems to be working. She runs on soft sand on the beach normally at home so i think the asphalt is a shock to her feet.

We are having to be very careful here with record-breaking heat. Poor little Tess! Hugs.

Poor wee soul - yes it does sound like she just had very soft pads. Obviously if they are not improving you need to take her to the vet.

Once they are better you can try something like paw wax which would help protect them.

Once Tess's pads are no longer raw, regular dipping in salt water will help to harden them. Perhaps encourage her to paddle in pools and at the edge of the sea, instead of only walking on the sand!
