What Is Wrong With Jolly's Toe?

Jolly has had trouble with his lower right back leg for about 2 years. When he first started limping we did xrays and it showed that his hauk had been broken and didn't heal correctly. The vet thought he had arthritis. That made sense. Well the more I have watched him I wonder if that is really the problem. I have pinpointed the area that hurts him to his right back foot, outer little toe. I know not medical words:) I have watched this toe. At first he didn't have a nail on it. Well the nail finally started growing back, but it curved upward and it eventually fell off. It's like a cycle. When Jolly is on his feet for long periods of time, maybe a walk, he will limp. When he gets home he bites at that little toe and rubs it on the carpet. If we have a meet and greet and he is on it for a long time, it reallly hurts him! Sorry this is so long winded, but I thought someone might have heard of this. What is wrong with that little toe? I mentioned it to the vet today and she thought mabe infection. She is looking at xrays and calling me tomorrow. Thank you.

Since the nail falls off, maybe SLO?

Have you checked the pad for a corn? I guess thats a long shot since it sounds like he doesnt limp all the time...Our Macy May has a nail like you describe, but it doesn't affect her gait at all. Hope you can find out what it is.
