Poor Shadow. With all my poor girl has been through in the last two months, she hit another bump in the road yesterday.
When she had made her way to me, I saw that she was bleeding. A lot. From the front end of her paw.
To make a long story short – for the sake of “Wordless Wednesday” – I will tell you that our wonderful vet took care of my girl. He removed the toenail (that she had torn almost to the base of the nail) as gently as he could, put a protective cap on the nail; and after aspirating yet another fatty tumor, sent us home with a week’s worth of antibiotics and some Tramadol for her pain.
The cap fell off – there wasn’t much nail left to adhere it to – about a half hour after the vet put it on. So, I wrapped her paw with some flexible bandage. Then I put a baby sock over the paw. (I got the idea from Jodi at Heart Like A Dog – I remembered she had used a baby sock on Sampson when he had that ugly sore on the top of his paw.) So far it’s working pretty well, too.
