Stiff hair on foot pad

Postby Montana » Wed Nov 09, 2016 6:52 pm

I have been mystified as to why my sheltie is limping, and our vet could not find anything obvious. Today I looked again and noticed that one pad on her left front foot (the main one) had thick, short stiff hair on it. I trimmed it as best I could (it's very short), but it seemed to help.
Has anyone ever dealt with this? Our girl has extremely thick hair, mainly the undercoat. Without grooming her face starts to disappear in the fur around her neck.
I would appreciate some direction on the best way to maintain this " condition".
