Flat Feet?


Recommended Posts

Only the front paws. Pads look normal. 41 races, retired for a pulled muscle, 2-1/2 YO male.

Vet (retired greyhound track vet) said it was from tendon damage, but didn't know the dog as a racer.

 

Anyone seen this before? Doesn't seem to cause him any pain.

Sometimes they're born with them. I've seen a few over the years but didn't know any of the dogs well. Never saw/heard of any problems relating to them.

 

Dang, wasn't that helpful? :lol

my boy had flat feet AFTER we released tendons in the foot --- his Achilles tendons that were repaired too tight --

he walked on them fine, I don't think they hurt him - but he preferred to wear NeoPaws when on long walks.

I am not a vet but it looks like a wrist injury that is causing some hyper-flexation in the joint which subsequently makes the foot appear flat. It can be an accessory carpal fracture. Most will heal on their own, if there was a chipped bone it will eventually get surrounded by fibrous tissue and won't cause much discomfort. I would probably not do agility or lure coursing the turns can cause a re-injiry. Perhaps an x-ray will give you a better idea if this was indeed a fracture.

By some of the comments here: http://www.greyhound-data.com/knowledge.php?b=2&note=547261&order=&x=0 It sounds like early nutrition and breeding.

And the links posted by "Tom" in this thread: http://greyhound-data.com/knowledge.php?b=3&note=300081

 

Good to see you, Aaron :wave

Missing my sweet girl Scout. My snuggler, my chow-hound, my kissy girl.

I have to admit I clicked just because it's been such a long time since I've seen you post! I've actually never seen that before, so I can't be of any help.....but it's good to see you posting here! :)

I have nothing to add other then having seen it in a dog with chronically long nails so they can't get up on their toes. The nails in the picture are fine.

 

and mostly I added that so I could say Don't Be A Stranger Anymore Aaron :)

Momma once said, "Son"- because, you know, being her son and all- "if anyone ever says you're the voice of knowledge and reason in the room, tell them they need to get out more."

 

She never said that, but she probably should have. If she would have, it probably would have been after some catastrophic "learning incident," possibly involving venomous insects or possibly a hostile arachnid, something like that. Maybe a snake. It would almost certainly have involved an emergency room visit.

 

Thanks for the advice, everyone. :)

You will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same, nor would you want to. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

My Addie had feet kind of like that (but not as extreme) The vet just said not to let her jump out of the back of a truck or from a high place like that. She ran around like crazy and never had any problems with them.
