The pad compressed. Do I need to change it?

The softer pads provide a cottony, cloud-like comfort, but compress and conform more readily. However, even when compressed and conformed, they perform a vital, very desirable function. Pads should not have to be replaced multiple times a day. A pad compressed to paper thin can still give plenty of comfort /support to a horses hoof.   As long as the horse is comfortable the pad/s can be left in place.
