My retired racer Ella has a torn ligament on a middle toe that is causing it to rub on the next toe, resulting in an open wound. They put a splint between the toes and bandaged in hopes it will heal. After 2 weeks the next step would be surgery. Has anyone been through this? Best route to take? Is there a way to keep a grey from running? She does not like to do her business while on leash, but she runs in the backyard if off leash.
I have a greyhound that is nearly 15yo who never had a wound before. Over the last month it seems that she is breaking down and developing wounds between the digits of multiple paws between her third & fourth digits at the head of the proximal phalanx. We caught most of the wounds when they were superficial or simply an irritation & got them to heal up by placing 1/8" felt pads between her toes. The problem is that her first/deepest wound is not resolving. It keeps getting deeper. She has been on oral antibiotics for a little over a week and will be on them for at least one more week
Hi there, first time poster but long-time lurker here. My 9-year-old boy, Homer, has shown some discomfort in his back feet since around Christmastime. He has a really wonky outer toe that (we think) healed badly after dislocation from his racing days, and sometimes gets "stuck" underneath his foot...but he started appearing to shift weight to the bad foot from the good foot, and not want to stand firmly on both back feet. He's shifting weight from foot to foot the way you see horses do. It's been like a roller coaster trying to figure out what's wrong. Our vet did a thorough physical
