    actually…and this may be a blind trail…but…following on from SP’s post and hock use in herders and having seen the way she turns on a run….called mum…and mum says yep rear small toe breaks in herders are common and the breaks do heal fast but tendon damage is the problem that is left…she then did her norm and said ‘who are you going to ask these questions of when i die  ::)’ and hung up  😀

    so val…SP…herder toe damage… :-\

    claire…you may be right…will brace myself….we have now had 10 ‘special’ xmas pressy’s on the basis that it her last  ::) anyway….

    terry copy and post what you think may be useful…can always delete it

    where’s val…. :help:

    she could beat any greyhound on a turn….and she does cross her hocks….she does what my dad called ‘spot turns’ if it was filmed…you would see the ‘freeze pads to ground’… both back feet together but the left slightly to the rear..and then the  spine humped as the front joint them …so all 4 feet are in a small box… then the cross of the back hocks without moving rear feet….just as she does the rear driven sprint forward while splaying front feet/legs forward on with the power from the rear….and she knows exactly what to do with her head on that sprint forward for momentum….

    Racing dogs commonly injure the ligaments in their toes, and they may occasionallybreak a toe as well. The repair options include surgery, bandaging or casting, toeamputation, and/or retirement. The middle toes are the weight-bearing toes, andinjuries to these toes are more serious than those to the outside toes. Surgical repairof the ligaments saves the toe but takes six weeks to heal, with multiple bandagechanges. Toe amputation allows the dog to return to racing in fourteen days. Some lig-aments and bones are not repairable with surgery, and amputation is the only option.If your greyhound is missing a toe, he will probably not have any future problems, andyou will not have much follow-up care. He should be able to jog, run, and so on with noproblems.

    I is here  :ok: had a hard day
    Izzie had a look at the pics I think it could be a tendon the video only tells me it’s ain’t broken, tendons can take an age to repair.

    just had a read of the other posts Bev beardies do not tend to knock their feet about think it’s because they are light on the feet, have hair that protects the toes, and alos I think with their long ribs they turn super qiuck but super easy.
    Not knocking any dogs but BC and springer are the nuttiest of all dogs have had a few in for grooming with busted feet.
