very slow to heal can often take months to heal properly and could open again after the first gallop
the best option is to cut it all the way back and hope for the best

Hi Joanne, Type in split webbing in the search box and you will find a lot of information there. Hydrogen peroxide is usually the best thing for it, but if you can avoid it, don't get the webbing cut back, as you lose support for the toes if you do this. We have had this problem in the past, have used the HP very successfully,and have never had a recurrence of the problem.Good luck and best wishes, Carole. PS- Don't be too impatient, it does take a little time.

if you do end up cutting it back it might be no harm to tape the toes together when u bring him back

Hi John, Good idea, but it is better if you can, to avoid cutting it back. The HP usually works well. Best wishes, Carole.

I ALWAYS cut mine right back if they arent that way already.

Dip the foot in bleach 2 times a day (watch out as it stings like hell BUT heals quickly) & go racing 10 days later, 7 days if you want to.

Make sure you use a toe band EVERYTIME the dog gallops because as Carole said you lose the support with the webbing not being there.

I have never had any problems doing it this way.

Hi Richard, I see we will have to disagree on this one. I know quite a few people who have had the webbing cut right back and have had a lot of trouble with the toes. We prefer to leave it, after treating it with the hydrogen peroxide, and as I said, we have had no further trouble. Best wishes, Carole.

IN NSW you have to have his papers marked to say he has to wear a toe band.TIP always carry a spare one in your pocket as they have a habit of breaking on you at the boxes,and only use them once.
Also I agree that it is best to split them right back,and use Friars
Balsam to toughen the side of the toes.

Hi, this happened to my retired greyhound Ella (Pin Hooker)and I had it stitched by the vet at vast expense - only for it to re-tear along the scar tissue a month later. I'm not sure about toe bands because they destabilise the tendon ballance and I think they can lead to shoulder etc. problems later on. A friend gave me an old greyhound training book by 'the guvnor' from the 20's and he said just leave it alone. A bit of salt water and absolutely no other intervention later it's right as rain. I certainly wouldn't cut it back because of the toe support. They evolved to recover from these things. As long as the wound is clean let nature take it's course. A friend who is a vet said one of her professor's favourite sayings was, 'treat it before it gets better'!

marianne there is not much need to cut it back in a retired racer hes not going to be going round bends at 40 mph and putting pressure on it let it heal in its own time i dont think you will be in a hurry to get him back on the track its a different kettle of fish for people that are trying to get there dogs back on the track

Michael, you can use it straight You don't have to add water to it.
Three percent is the most common strength sold in shops.

Not all bottles come at only 3 Percent Carole ...any thing above 3 Percent must be diluted ....I don't like putting my dogs through pain
Hydrogen Peroxide 35% is widely sold must be diluted properly ..
