What is the sore on top of my dog's paw?

Postby micheal » Tue Dec 13, 2011 1:47 pm

Buddy, my 12 year old mixed breed male dog, developed a sore on top of his right paw. After treating it with various things, I noticed it isn't just on top, but actually about the size of a small button under the skin. I can put my fingers under it and lift it up! Well, it is not healing, but the top part that shows has become black and hard. He keeps biting and licking it. I know the Vet is my next option if nothing else makes it go away. I fear it may be a cancer. Please help!

Is it anything like this photo of a mast cell tumor?

Your dog needs to see the vet asap. I hope it is nothing that cannot be fixed.

Your vet is the only one who can correctly diagnose and treat your dog. My dog had a sore that wouldn't heal, but I took her to the vet's immediately. Turned out to be a rare kind of cancer (can't remember the name now) and she passed away, a few months later. Not sure what you expect total strangers, online, to be able to help you with?

it may because he is getting old & that it's just extra skin, but it don't neccesarily mean cancer it just sometimes happends in old dogs

I think it may be an abscess. Take him to the vet. They're not usually life threatening but hurry to the vet. (; GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!
