    We'll go to our vet tomorrow and follow his advice.
    I agree with conservative approach as Rowdy's health comes first.

    Just back from our vet. Pain meds for five days and antibotics for a week. Restricted duty until April 8. Can resume land work by Friday (April 4) if he is not favoring his foot anymore but don't get it wet until after April 8.
    So, will have to scratch April 6 test too. But better safe than sorry.

    Wayne,

    I expereinced almost the same accident last Tuesday. My pup jumped out of her kennel and damaged her toe nail. I soaked it that night in epsome salts but could tell the next morning it was damaged pretty bad. Took her to the vet Wednesday afternoon, the vet cut and carterized the toe nail along with trimming the other toe nails (pretty short). She may not grow a toe nail back on the damaged nail. She took Wednesday and Thursday off but we ran a couple of simple back pils on Friday afternoon, took Saturday off and she was back at on Sunday.

    Good luck
