Tina's Diary

The paw took a turn for the worst!

Well my furriends, I was all full of good news last weekend when we went to the vet to check my dew claw but...turns out things got worse. Mommy and Daddy came home today and we all went out for a yard run and when I came back in I had blood on all of my paws. Mom freaked out and started checking all my paws. When she got to the source of the blood it was the dew claw that was swollen last week. Vet didn't find a tear or a break last week so we were very excited but when mom and dad soaked me in epsom salt in the tub and got a better look it seems the nail is separated from the pad at the bottom area. Mom is upset!

Mom and Dad cleaned it up and put the cream on it. After than they wrapped it up so I would not mess with it tonight (and to keep the blood from flowing) so we can rest and head to the scary doc first thing tomorrow morning. BUMMER! Mom is worried I will have to be a "conehead" for a while but if that is the worst part...I guess we will be ok with that.

Will keep you updated. Love to all my Dogsters!

Oh Tina!
Sorry to hear about your worsening boo-boo!
If you do need to be a cone head just
remember that the cone head look is
"the look" this season!
