Palm Pads
Limb pads located at the metacarpus under the metacarpophalangeal (MCP) joint, or at the metatarsus under the metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joint.
These are the largest of the pads on the palmar or plantar surface of the feet of dogs and cats.
Also known as palmar pads, plantar pads, metacarpal pads, metatarsal pads and [by Revealing Paws] as heel pads.
