Thread: Go to the Vet???or Give It a Few Days???

    Default Go to the Vet???or Give It a Few Days???

    Ok guys,
    Your thoughts, opinions, advice needed

    As Lola is still a pup I make sure not to over exercise her...
    Therefore, we have a game of soccer twice a day. She loves it and runs like a rocket.
    About a week ago I noticed that her foot was bleeding...had a look, washed it and let it air dry and it was fine. No limping.
    The next day same thing...
    So decided not to play ball for a couple of days.
    Then on Saturday we had a game and her foot was bleeding heaps. Blood all over the floors. Washed it, let it dry a bit, bandaged it for the day and night.
    Took it off and it was fine. Still made sure we didn't play ball untill this afternoon.
    Back paw and front paw is covered in blood. Her feet are not cut, it must be the nail on both feet, but I can't see anything wrong with them...
    Is there anything else I can do? I've never experienced any nail problems with any of my other dogs before. Could the nails be loose? split?
    Should I see how she goes again or go to the vet?
    I've bandaged her feet up and she's sleeping.
    Thanks guys!

    I'd go to the vet - split/hanging nails are bloody painful.

    Yes, decided tonight to go to the vet tomorrow.
    Should I be doing anything in the meantime? She does not look uncomfortable, no limping etc

    Just try to keep her quiet I'd suggest. Make sure she's not running around etc, and keep it wrapped, so nothing further happens, and her feet dont get dirty. Best of luck. (smile)

    Thanks GG!
    Yes will leave the bandages on...looked again and the nails feel solid, and she didn't mind me doing that. I put baby socks on her to keep the bandages in place....Looks so cute! poor little girl...

    Hi GemGems
    Thanks for asking
    Couldn't get in today...only 1 vet there, the rest are sick with the flu
    Her paws are clean and dry today, and now I don't think it's the nails but her pads, they look cracked and scraped in places.
    To top it off! Misi's limping today. Tried to see where she was tender, thought it was her shoulder but seems like her front leg/paw. Geez! they could have waited a few weeks, lol , paid $350 for their vet visit last week.

    Yikes!! Your girls not having a good run ATM

    AS the other's have advised..keep Lola's sore paws wrapped..and with Misi..keep her warm and rested untill you see the vet.
