Thread: Nettle stings on dogs pads.

  1. #1

    Nettle stings on dogs pads.

    My 13 month old cocker pup is having some trouble with the nettle (could be thistle?) stings to her pads so would anyone know an instant relief for this please?

    Maybe vinegar?

    And do the pads eventually harden up?

    Thanks.

    That is exactly the same with my dog.

    Possibly too busy running around like a maniac when out - but when we get home its mayhem!!!

    Piriton could help but not sure if it is instant. Perhaps when the pads have hardened up a bit (more road walking?), it will be less prevalent.

    I was advised to dab surgical spirit on the pads to encourage them to harden up.

    could try this found it on a working dog site ( I have to use piriton quite regularly at this time of year to ease the stings after a walk - have a working cocker who knows they hurt but needs to hunt He gets to the stage where he rubs his ears and paws on the concrete and gets quite distressed so I give him a childs dose of piriton) but talk to your vet first

    Hi my wife and I work our cockers aged 6&4 and before we work them we use a piriton tab for each dog ours don't suffer as bad but as already said talk to your vet first bazil

    Thanks for all the replies.

    I will speak to the Vet about piriton but I've been recommended to try dabbing on dilute cider vinegar or applying a water-mixed paste of bicarbonate of soda.

    She does a fair amount of hard surface running so I'm hoping that will harden the pads up and also help.

    ​Thanks again.

    We have the same problem - but if we think or know that there will be nettles about we give him an antihistamine before we go. Problem solved. Just be sure to use the right one! Even the same brand of antihistamine could use different chemicals in. Search the internet for the right one for dogs - But a place to start is:
