FiveRoooooers Posted April 1, 2016 Share Posted April 1, 2016 (edited) Thoughts? Sorry, I couldn't get better pics before wrapping him and I needed to stop the bleeding. This is the fifth time in a few months that this right front lateral toe has sliced open when Aiden does a couple of laps in the yard. Tonight he was padded with a sock and a boot and this still happened. The time before this was in the middle of February. It healed nicely or so I thought. It is a big, deep slice. He is not limping, nor does he seem in pain. We did xrays in January this year (that was the third time it ripped open) and the films do not show anything to suggest a foreign body or issue with bone. Are we going to have to amputate this toe? Thanks for any help. 4-08-16: Aiden is home after surgical repair to his toe. He has 6-7? sutures, is wrapped, still sleepy and came home with Clavamox. He did really well and we will just have to see going forward how this plays out. We will definitely be doing the experiment of booting his hind foot to see if that stops the interference with the front. Thanks again to all of you for your very helpful posts. (Bea had her nasty corn hulled and is also glad to be home.) Edited April 8, 2016 by FiveRoooooers Quote Old Dogs are the Best Dogs. Thank you, campers. Current enrollees: Punkin.
