Alethea is a 95lb Belgium Malinois who loves life and plays hard. During one of her adventures she ended up with a douzy of a thorn in her paw.
Upon entering the house she had a slight limp and would favor her front paw while standing. Upon first inspection it appeared to be a small pebble size piece of wood impacted in the superficial pad of her paw, but didn’t dislodge upon a gentle tug.
Next step, we used a pair of pliers to remove the object with a fast, smooth movement. The object was 1.5″ long. We allowed the injury to bleed out to insure nothing remained.
- 3 minutes, red plus torch on high to first stop the bleeding.
- Followed by lymph drainage.
- Cleaned the blood from her paw and inspected for any other slivers.
30 minutes later, repeated the Protocol to help speed the healing, reduce any pain and inflammation.
1 hr later she was back to herself!
Repeated Protocol the next day to insure the healing continued. There was no visible signs of injury 2 days later. Paw no longer hurts upon palpation.
