Severe footpad hyperkeratosis with fissures in a dog with Superficial necrolytic dermatitis[2]

This is commonly observed on the footpads due to excessive hard-surface abrasion and secondary callus formation, but a number of pathological diseases can cause secondary hyperkeratosis including:

- Flea allergy dermatitis, Prototheca spp
