Max, our dog has not healed since his injury on July 10th. He would appear to get better and walk fine. Then, he’d exert himself and the injury would bleed again, with subsequent limping. A torn nail should’ve healed up by now.
On Friday, we took him back to the vet and got an xray, which we hadn’t done before. Two hundred and thirty eight dollars later, this is how they sent him home with us.
It turns out, Max’s far right toe on his left leg is broken. The only way to stabilize it from bending is with this long splint on his leg. Needless to say, the picture shows how much he dislikes it. I ache to see him miserable with that thing on, but he was miserable in pain, too.
He has to wear it for two to three weeks. Keep a good thought that he heals quickly.
Hopefully, next time I’ll have a more entertaining post. Have a great week.
