|My bigger concern would be the fact that he keeps getting these infections for no clear reason. Dew claw injuries are common, and infections can easily get into injuries on the feet, but generally you can easily explain the initial injury. While infection is a real risk, most of the time it doesn't happen. So to have repeated infections with loose or no connection to injury is somewhat alarming to me.
I would press your vet to be more proactive, and if he doesn't respond, find a different vet. If it were my dog, I would be looking into x-rays and biopsies. I would have questions like, is there an underlying growth? Is there a specific bacteria we are dealing with? Could there be an autoimmune disease in play?
