    Hey west has a blister on his back right pad. What should I do? He is limping pretty hard. This started today, we spent the day at the dog park, we were running and swimming and playing for hours. Now it seems like it was not worth it. What should I do for his blister?

    Will his pads get callused (sp) like the bottoms of our feet or is this something he has to look foward to?

    Thanks in advance,
    Joey
