Just Curious What They Might Do


Recommended Posts

I have made a vet apt for both dogs. For out mutt to get fixed, chipped and all her shots and to look at Eden's toe (our grey). One of her middle toes ALWAYS comes out of the socket. I swear I must pop it back in place at least 20 times a day. It doesn't seem to bother her when I put it back - but if I don't fix it she limps on that foot. I talked to the vet on the phone but they obviously can't say anything over the phone. I am wondering what they might do? I am crossing my fingers that there is another solution besides cutting it off (or really anything that involves anesthesia). Have any of you had a similar issue?

I wouldn't think they would amputate unless it was causing her pain. Do you give her any joint supplements (glucosamine, etc.)?
