My 6.5 yr old greyhound, Gator, developed a limp about 5 days ago. Like many, I assumed he had injured himself because he's always been pretty clumsy. As the limp remained, I tried to determine the source. I pushed, squeezed, and pulled on each toe, bone, joint, etc. Gator didn't really give any reaction to help me find where, other than his front left leg. I did all the research, and came up with a lot of things it could be. I took Gator to the vet. They thought his shoulder was swollen and suggested x-rays. Now they think it could be a tumor, but didn't really seem sure (see attached
GREAT NEWS! GREAT NEWS! Pickle's corns came out today! It only took me about 10 minutes per pad using a dental root elevator and beauty scissors. Slow and steady and no greyhound screams nor blood. The prep only took 1 week. Burts Bees hand salve on her pads 4x per day. NO filing down the corns during the week as they need to be left to separate from the pad. Therapaws boots on every walk so she was cushioned whilst the corns were hardening and separating. Using the dental elevator I just picked at the edges slowly, you can easily see the corn coming away from the pad. A little snipping
My five year-old hound Leni has been limping on her back right paw on occasion. Part of the pad looks to be a little raw (not the part that touches the ground when she walks) and she's had something that looks like a blood blister for awhile. Any ideas on what this could be and how I could help? Thanks! Here is a link to some photos: https://imgur.com/a/dTJmoyE
