Q. Two front foot pads are black, blue, swollen; soft to touch. Habit of jumping on stove to get to top of frig. No nail involvement, no wound per se.
A. Unfortunately, I believe your pet may have injured his or her paw pads from jumping down from the stove or refrigerator. This is just a theory based off of the history you provided. I would highly recommend limiting activity. With swelling it is best to limit activity and monitor the progression of the pads as to not further aggravate the injury. Crate rest and leash walks are best. Monitor for at least 24 hours, if no improvement seek veterinary attention. If the paws feel cold to the touch I would highly recommend immediate medical attention as there may be a lack of blood flow to the area.
