I’ve got an ouchie

The other day I cut my paw on some rocks. Mummy and daddy didn’t realise how bad it was so had ignored it at first, but during a bellyrub they got a clearer look. Mummy was pretty concerned, so she phoned the vets to ask them for advice. Although I hadn’t cried when it happened and wasn’t limping, I’d been a bit listless and was licking it alot so the vets suggested I wear a sock on my paw.

Well that knocked me over the edge. It was so uncomfortable, I couldn’t help but limp and looked pretty pathetic and sorry for myself.


DSC_0626So daddy took me to the vets yesterday morning to get it checked out. They said it was fine, that I’d licked it clean, but not over-licked it enough to make it sore. Which meant no cone of shame – hooray! We were mostly worried cos we’re planning a trip to the beach this weekend, but the vet said the salt water would be good for it. So although they need to keep an eye on it, it’s fine.

I’ve been trying to look sad to get more treats, but it doesn’t seem to be working that well.

Have you ever had an ouchie on your paw?

  1. Rupie often has an ouchie and when we put a bandage on he looks very pathetic and then rips it off! He causes his own ouchie though – he licks and licks – sometimes he has to have tablets to get rid of the itchies. Hope you ouchie gets better soon!

  2. Milk it for all you’ve got Misaki – they’re bound to feel sorry in the end! We use a sock whenever one of our hounds has an ouchie – works very well.

    So sowwy yous got a ouchie Misaki but meez vewy glad yous okay.

    Luv and Hugs and Kitty kisses ♥♥♥


  4. The sock pictures DO look pretty sad, M. Almost as pathetic as the cone of shame would’ve looked…. I hope the salt water does the trick. Zoomies are no fun with an ouchie-paw.

    Love and licks,

  5. Poor brave chap. I hope the water helps. Dear Jack tore a claw once on a sweater and had to go to the vet because it was bleeding. the vet fixed him up and also gave him painkillers.

  7. We send healing vibes and POTP and we hope your ouchie is better soon Misaki. At least you can still go to the beach. Have a tremendous Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly

  8. we are sorry about your ouchie! Norbert had a similar injury years ago but he over licked it and had to wear the cone of shame for a LONG time

  9. Nope no paw ouchies here. We gotta be careful though cuz we depend on them. Glad to hear no cone of shame and no beach cancellation. Get better soon. Hugs

  10. Oh Misaki…we were so so worried when saw the picture and started reading your bloggie…but we so relieved to read that you are doing fine and that you licked your ouchie clean! Now make sure that you use your pitiful face to snag a few extra treats…bark bark bark!

  11. Poor Misaki! I’ve never had a ouchie on my paw but I must say, that sock looks rather uncomfortable……the salt water at the beach will be GOOD for that sore spot and you’ll have so much fun in the water….however I see a bath in your future should you take a dip in that ocean!

    Hugs, Sammy

    • Misaki says:

      The sock was horrible Sammy, was so pleased when they got rid of it. But then they started putting this tea tree stuff on it which tastes yucky

    Misaki I am so sorry you have a ouchie on your sweet paw! We send kitty purrs and mom hugs for quick healing .

    Hugs Madi your bfff

  13. Aw man, I’m so sorry for your ouchie, but you took care of it nicely! The beach will be PAWSOME for you!

  14. Both Maxi and Bundy have had ouchies on their paws but not as bad as yours Misaki, happy to hear that it is healing well. Enjoy the beach!

  15. So sorry about your ouchie, Misaki! But we’re very happy that it is healing well. A trip to the ocean and to saltwater sounds heavenly.

  16. Nikitaland says:

    Oh Misaki, I am so sorry to hear about your ouchie! A pathetic face normally always gets us treats over here. How about kickin it up a notch and whine a little, that should get you some treats. Hope you feel better!

  17. raisingdaisy says:

    I’m so glad you don’t have to wear the cone of shame like me! But I’m sorry you hurt your paw – you do look really sad about that sock. Sometimes the cure is more annoying than the problem, don’t you think? I hope your ouchie heals soon!

  18. katiebblogs says:

    Socks on paws and hooves are just NOT fun. Good job licking it well and hope you feel better soon!

  19. PigLove says:

    Oh Misaki – I’m so sorry you hurt yourself but I’m glad it’s not that bad. I’ll tell you a secret that I’ve learned… come closer to the screen. Sshh – make sure your humans are away from the computer. Milk.it.for.all.its.worth! Really. Every time they are in the room, limp and whine. I’m telling you – it does wonders with treats 🙂 winks.

  20. Awe! So sorry you have a sore paw!
    Last summer, we had Mika on a very long lead down at the water and she was jumping and running and playing etc…when we were on our way home, I noticed she was bleeding on the upper part of her paw. Upon further inspection, I discovered she had tore the outer shell of her dew claw. Luckily the damage was minimal, it barely touched the inside where the quick was, just a little nick, enough to make it bleed a wee bit. She was not a happy husky for a few days.
    Feel better soon!

    OMD that must have hurt. Sorry.
    We are glad that YOU took Good care of it… yourself.
    AND we are really happy to hear that it will NOT hinder your trip to the BEACH.

  22. Oh Misaki, you poor dear. I sure hope your pathetic looks are getting you additional treats. I have had several ouchies on my paw in my lifetime…I always limp (even though I never whimper or cry)…the limp always gets me the most attention!
    Happy Thursday,

  23. Kuruk says:

    Glad you are ok Misaki! Woooowoooooos and xoxoxoxoxoxxooxxo

  24. Will and Eko says:

    Bummer – paw injuries are the worst. Eko broke his toe once and I had to keep him from running around on his injured foot. Much easier said than done. Hope you’re back on your paws soon.

  25. Please feel better soon, send a kiss for your paw. Hope you can enjoy a day on the beach. I had some ouchies on my paws too and as I was a small pup, we used a “durex” over the bandage when it was wet outside. It’s strong enough for one walk and it protected my injured paw. Now my paws are to big for a “durex”-boot and my dad had an embarrassing adventure at the drug store as he asked for a durex-thingy with a diameter of 18 cm….as he said he want it for a dog, the goose was cooked and by now the drugstore-crew always laughs when they see my dad.

  26. Two French Bulldogs says:

    Thank goodness. Now work on getting rid of the sock

    awwww misaki~~ i hope it heals real soon. piri had something lodged in his paw a few years ago and was limping and couldn’t walk on it. x-rays didn’t pick up anything and it puzzled all of us for a while and then the vet decided to just do surgery on it. piri had grass awns stuck inside his paw! they got them out and he was bandaged up and had to wear a protective sock too for a few weeks!

  28. I’m glad it’s not too serious and I hope you can enjoy your trip, foot ouchies are no fun!

  29. Emmadog says:

    A sore paw is never a good thing!

  30. Kyla says:

    Oh NO. Please don’t mention ouchies on paws. I get a toe amputated on Monday.

  31. I had a toe nail ripped out and I was OK until I got to the dogtur and then I cried. Hope your paw is better fast!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  32. Oh Misaki, sounds like you knew just what to do!!! Silly peeps gettin’ all excited when YOU had it all under control!! Oh, and loves the sock, though it looks like you were NOT a fan! BOL
    I hopes you have funs at the beach!!
    Ruby ♥

  33. Aw, sorry about your paw. Way to milk it though!

  34. So glad to hear your paw is OK, poor Scylla is still stuck in her cone of shame.

    Misaki, please be careful on those rocks. Hope your paw heals quickly and most especially so you can a great time at the beach.

  39. Ouch, that does sound sore. Basil once had a really bad ouchie where he ripped off his WHOLE claw and damaged the toe. Mummy still doesn’t know how he managed it, but in the past few weeks it has begun to grow back! Whee hope your paw feels better soon

    Have a lovely time at the beach

    Nacho, Noah, Buddy & Basil

  40. poor Misaki! Miss D has had many ouchies and even more embarrassing moments wearing a sock or cone of shame. donut of shame, that’s even worse! I can see my paw, unlike the cone, but can’t get near it. torture! the worst though is when Mommy loses trust and makes me wear a diaper! hope your paw feels better in time for the beach trip!

  41. Nachthawk says:

    Hey – get well soon… hugs from lizzy… 🙂

  42. Laika says:

    Poor Misaki. Listen, you have to sigh and limp a lot to get treats for this one. Sniff and wags from Laika and Vaks.

  43. cassiezack1 says:

    Aww! I’m sorry you got hurt Misaki….does it feel any better? Yeah I’ve had an ouchie on my foot before…..got a sewing needle through my toe.

  44. Clowie says:

    I hope it’s better soon. I think you deserve lots of treats for being so brave!

  45. Bongo says:

    You are so lucky to get to go to the beach. We have ouchie things that stick in my paws here, but my person pulls them out and then it’s all better.

  46. itsdogornothing says:

    Hooray for no cone of shame! My first dog, Kaeto, had sliced both of his front pads and had to wear socks for a few weeks. He looked pretty silly on walks 😉

  47. speedyrabbit says:

    Oh you poor thing Misaki at least its good news,xx Speedy

  48. pawedblog says:

    Grayshus, Miss Misaki, I’m so glad your paw wasn’t hurt too badly and got better quickly! I have never hurt my paws but I have had a few close calls, Mom has found some sharp things in the yard but she found them before my paws did, thank goodness!
