A couple of days ago, my dog cut the pads of one of his paws. It was pretty nasty, but really not too bad. We took him to the vet to get it wrapped up and the vet recommended that he rest and take it easy.
This makes sense. Any time he steps on the foot, it is going to reopen the wound. Running around will be worse. The problem is that we are normally out running around or playing at the dog park for an hour or more everyday. He's a husky with plenty of energy.
My little guy is going to go nuts if he can't out for walks or for play for 2 weeks. Then he's going to drive me nuts!
Anyone have any strategies, games, treats, toys, foods or something else that has helped them in the past through a similar situation? Is there such a thing as puppy-xanax? ;)
