Last Thursday my dog dislocated her middle (right side) toe of the left front leg, ligament were injured to. She is been walking on 3 legs since them. After putting her a sleep, vet replace her toe straight, taped the injured toe to the next one and have her lower leg on a fiberglass splint. Of course medication (Deramaxx) and no walking (minimum).
Vet told me that it can be a long rehabilitation to have her perfect and /or also it can be hurting her for rest of her life.
I was @ a trial this week end and some one told me to have the toe amputated if it still heart her after long rehabilitation? I would agreed if that is the case, i was told that by being a middle toe it is less handicap then a side toe.
Any advise is appreciated.
