Has anyone heard of a dog having cloven pads?


My Black Lab Puppy has two pads that look like the shape of a cloven hoof. It’s his front two pads on all of his feet, they look just like the shape of a deer’s hoof. They feel normal and the pads on the side of them are normal, I’m just curious if anyone else has seen something like it. All of the other puppies I have had didn’t have anything like this.

      My black lab puppy (14 weeks) also has this cloven foot, the base of the pads is joined. We got her in the UP of Michigan.

      I’ve never seen it… but your vet would be the best person to ask, to find out whether or not it is something to worry about.
