My Labrador has a recuring foot problem,we are at present using Cortanmycetine cream from our vet,we have had Proderm antiseptic shapoo/foot bath'but nothing seems to be working,when it has rained he does'nt like to go out it seems as if the wet is sore for his feet.They are red inbetween the pads and little spots are present,we were told this is common in Labradors,but any help or advice would be really appriciated as the visits to the vet add up ,but more than that I want my dog to enjoy his walks whatever the weather. Hope you can help.

It is not always a good idea to try to diagnose and treat problems by email, but I do wonder if there would be a better treatment than you are using. The cream you are using at the moment is an antibiotic and steroid combination which is not used in the UK. It should nonetheless work fine for appropriate problems, but if it is not proving effective then an alternative tack could be tried. Often the soreness in between the pads is a mixed fungal and bacterial problem, possibly with allergic or other underlying trigger factors. The steroid can help with these, but will not help the infection. If it is not working, it is not a good thing to use for a long period, though a week or 2 should be long enough to find out.

I would try a broad spectrum antiseptic treatment in this circumstance rather than an antibiotic. There are some prescription treatments which we cannot sell you without your vet prescribing them. A possible alternative would be Hibiscrub wash, followed by the Zn7 gel, both of which you can buy off the website. Hibiscrub is not expensive and can be used as a shampoo for the feet. You need to apply a little to the skin and gently lather it up with water, massage this in to the skin and allow to soak in for a few minutes, then rinse off well with lots of fresh water. Try to gently wash away all the Hibiscrub, then dry off the feet gently and thoroughly, then apply the gel. Ideally do this every day for a week and see how things are going.

It should be possible to make things better for your dog, but it can be involved if basic treatments do not work. Does your dog have any soreness/itchiness around the muzzle, ears, anus or anywhere else? Sometimes not just the feet are involved. Let me know how you get on.

Is this harmful if licked by dog

10th May 2014

My dog is suffering from possible skin allergy but licking her paws has made them very red and sore between her toes. Would this product be harmful to her if swallowed.

It is expected that a dog will lick anything which is applied to its skin or paws etc. Ideally this licking should be discouraged as it is not always helpful, but Zn7 Skin Gel, like most other topical skin products, is completely safe if it is licked and swallowed. This is just the sort of product which might help to soothe your dogs paws.
