What do you mean by a twisted toe nailNovember 17, 2008 at 9:43 pm #81885
ok this is going to be hard to explain so bare with me ;D
his toe goes foward straight like normal but his nail bears to the right so it is going towards his other middley toe but the nail is also turned/ twisted urm with stans nail he has a different style undernail its slightly different in colour so you can tell a different to the undernail from the top nail, right his nail is twisted so that you can see the under nail clearly when he is stood and you move the first toe out the way. none of his other nails are like this and i have never noticed it before. it is on the same leg that he has been limping on yet i have felt his legs, flexed his leg and checked inbetween his toes, pads and there is nothing there except this wierd nail
what do you think?November 17, 2008 at 9:47 pm #81886
photo – how long is it? do you trim the regular?November 17, 2008 at 9:52 pm #81887
i trim them regularly so its not because they are over grown or anything plus he has the ussual wear of walking on the roads. he has a little ridge under his nail that i cut back to, i dont cut back any further as im sure that is were his quick is so its a normal length for him.
i will try and sort a photo out in the morningNovember 18, 2008 at 8:16 am #81888

Can you send him over so I can feel his toe ;D I can see he’s not putting his weight on that leg but that nail is fine in fact all his claws are a good length

LOL, i get that look when i try and inspect Izzy! 😀 😀November 18, 2008 at 9:02 pm #81893
yep nail is just fine…………November 19, 2008 at 3:11 pm #81894
i took stan to the vets last night as i was a bit worried by his limping and the vet looked him over and then looked at his feet poked him about then inspekted his pads. stan has a tiny hole on one of his pads and when the vets was messing around with that pad stan got very irritated, so it would appear that stan has something in his pad.
he is on anti inflamitories just incase there isnt anything in his pad and its muscular, if he gets better on them then gets worse after coming off them then we know it is muscular/arthritic, if he stays the same then he does have an object in his paw. the vet told me to wash his paw with warm salt water to try and get the object out but if it doesnt come out on its own then he will have to have it surgecally removed
is there anything else i could do to help remove the object from his pad or is just washing it all?November 19, 2008 at 3:12 pm #81895
oh yes stan had his bloods taken yesterday aswell so we will know in a month wether he has any food allergiesNovember 28, 2008 at 9:19 pm #81896
stan came off his anti inflamitories on monday, he was a lot better on them but yesterday he started stumbling on his back end :-\ he did it three times yesterday (in my flat, on a walk and coming into the flat from walk) and he has done it twice today, anyone got any ideas what it might be ??? i wish the bloomin vets would start listening when i say theres a problem ::)November 28, 2008 at 9:23 pm #81897
As Val has said – he dont weight bear right, so has he had xrays? If the vets arnt listening your not shouting loud enough OR you need a new vet.November 28, 2008 at 9:32 pm #81898
the vet was convinced that it was something in his pad but as it wasnt the ussual vet i see i made a point of saying several times that i thought it was his hips hence the A.Is but next time i take stan to the vets a will shout at them until they listen to me >:D
he hasnt had hip x-rays yet so i will mention them.
suz i have thought about changing vets entierly and going to a different practice (because they didnt listen to me when mattie was ill and they arent listening to me with stan) but they are the best vets on the island and they have the best surgery but if stan is at risk then i will change. how would i go about finding a good vet?
