Re: Split dew claw


Makes me cringe just looking at it. No wonder the poor ****** was limping i didnt even think to check hes claws i just assumed he had either twisted hes leg or had something in his pad
He is due to have hes back dew claws off in april when i have him castrated, do you think maybe i should consider having the front off too? Or is it best to leave the front ones on?

Re: Split dew claw


Back from the vets.

He has a slight infection in it so he has 2 days of anti inflammatories (sp) and 5 day course of antibiotics.

The vet also advised that if he catches hes claw again then when he has his back dews off i need to consider having hes front removed too.

Im not keen on the idea of having them removed as he uses them, but if he catches them again then i will.

Thanks
