I noticed today that Maple had what looks like filaments, or long thick hair growing from her two back paw pads. First we thought it might be a fungal infection and after doing some research online and looking at some pictures, it sounds like she might have Nasodigital Hyperkeratosis, an ailment that occurs in dogs paws and nose. Apparently excess keratin grows and creates a fuzzy hair like growth on the paw pad.
Have any of you experienced this with your dog? If so, can you give advice on what you did to treat it? Seems like it will be a condition for life and can be treated at home. In severe cases, doggy will have to go to the vet to have the doc shave off the excessive keratin, but it does grow back. Any words from you would be of great help! Thanks a lot!!!
