Wow so I just noticed there haven't been any diary entries for me in 4 years. What's up with that. A lot has happened in the last 4 years. I got a new brother who adores me, my unkie who I adore moved out, I got diagnosed with something interesting called: Symmetrical Lupoid Onychodystrophy. SLO is what we call it. SLO is an autoimmune disease of dogs which can cause severe claw problems in otherwise apparently healthy dogs. It is characterised by the loss of claws from more than one paw - eventually all claws may be lost. Other symptoms may include: receding quicks, secondary infection (often with a strong smell), claw splitting (usually down the back of the claw), pain, distorted/twisted claws and lameness.
