Dew claw injury.

During yesterday’s beautiful sunshine we set of for our usual off lead walk only to spot Little Nell looking a bit lame.

Our examination found she had damaged her left front paw’s dew claw.

The claw had broken evenly near its root. It had separated downwards away from the root with the whole claw hanging by it’s fleshy part normally surrounded by the claw.

So Nell went home and had the injury cleaned and dressed. She was in a lot of pain. Our vet advised that she may remove the damaged claw herself and that we should keep the area clean.

Poor Nell, it’s obviously very painful.
