Grizzly had a badly broken toe when he was about 6 years old. We didn't know it at the time, we just thought it was the nail. In his old age, it caused him a lot of pain.
When I was a child, we had a dog that broke her toe and the vet amputated it, saying there wasn't anything else you can do.
I was told that it could have been an option for Grizzly had I known at the time, but by the time it caused him problems, he had far worse issues, and going under was not an option.
Ask about if amputation of the toe would be required. I've been the $2000 route for other things and if they fail, you end up with an amputation anyway.
Just my point of view. Hope Kelpie feels better soon!
