well when I say keeps he has done it twice in the last few weeks, a pretty bad 3cm gash on one pad which required anaesthetic and many stitches, this was in our local park/common type place. And a whole week after the stitches came out he manages to cut his other front paw - not as bad this time (fingers crossed) currently glued but back in the vets today to see if that's worked. This was done in a local woods which he loves to run in but the vet says he has a few injuries from there due to flints etc.
So what can I do buy dog boots/shoes? Any way to toughen the pads up - more tarmac walking (please no, so boring)? He's 1.4 years old very fast and very active.
