Guest xengab Posted January 4, 2016 Share Posted January 4, 2016 My grey has had a toe issue for the last 3 plus months. His 'pinky' toe on his left foot is swollen up, on advice of our adoption group we rested him for a month, had an xray done on his toe to rule out anything bad with the bone. He was on rimadyl with no reduction of swelling. He was only limping after play (zoomies) and when jumping out of the car. Took him to the vet again on the 29th, another xray was done and a surgeon felt his toe, they did a fine needle aspiration. Results was inconculsive. Our options were, either biopsy or amputate his toe. We opted for biopsy as we want to know what it is. Has anyone here had a greys toe removed? How long was the recovery period? Anything different we need to tell the surgeon to watch out for with a grey?? Our regular vet A(at the same practice) has greys herself, but we want to make sure the surgeon knows that we know our stuff too. We know he is a great surgeon as he's done surgeries on one of our cats, so his skills arent in question. They think he could have a tumor in his toe, but not 100% sure which is why we didnt opt for amp, right away. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
