I was casually walking Deuce around the neighborhood last night and throwing him a ball down the street. Well later I was giving him the once over and noticed that the pads on both front legs were bleeding and were basically scalped. Not the 5 pads on his foot, but the single ones further up the front legs. BTW, what is this called? Anyway, I figured this was due to his coming to a sliding halt on the concrete upon reaching the ball thereby sanding off the top layer. He has not been showing any favortism to the pads but I wanted share this to err on the side of caution regarding any further injury or infection. Lesson learned, keep the playful retrieves in the grass.

Hate to hear it. Fortunately it is not a pad that gets a lot of ground contact, therefore the healing should be quicker.
As to it's name: Carpol Pad
