My two year old boxer has been licking and been bothered by his foot with the wound lately. Both feet are red but one has a wound. I’m not sure when it appeared but it looks almost like an irritated wound/abrasion. We have recently returned from a holiday to the beach and he has swum in the ocean. I was wondering if this was related or not? We have already applied some antiseptic as soon as we saw this. Was wondering if I should be concerned or not, though it looks minor.

Well it is a Boxer and darn near anything "could be serious?" But it looks' like mostly, some kind of abrasion wound? Paw injuries can be tough to treat because dog's walk on there feet and stuff. :)

And most of the "usual topic stuff," is just gonna disappear? What I use for paw injurie's as well as other abrasions' and stuff is "Well Horse." It's an All Natural Antibiotic and it also works like a "Liquid bandage." You just paint it on and it does not matter if he licks it off, as it still works as an antibiotic. But you know try and keep him from licking it until it dries.


And it does not sting and can go on open wounds, ie road rash. You can find it at "Feed & Grain Stores," or Horsey type stores. That should take care of it in a week or two. :)

You said your dog has been licking his feet a lot and they are red so this is probably some kind of allergic type reaction I would check with your vet about possible treatments.

Looks very similar to what my guy will get playing at the beach once in awhile. Those shells can be sharp. Keep it clean and I've always used Neosporin. Try not to let him lick it too much

Dozer has had a few of these minor abrasions over the years. Epsom salt and warm water soak for about 5 minutes twice a day followed by Neosporin. Heals in a few days.
