Finnegan's Fractured Toe
Finnegan has walked with a limp for a couple years, but the vet has never been too concerned about it, because he never expressed pain when his paw was squeezed or otherwise handled.
That recently changed when Jim found he was letting out a yelp when it paw was squeezed. We made a vet appointment for Saturday, May 10 and an x-ray revealed a fracture in one of the digits on his left paw.
The vet was confident it would heal if it was stablized and we agreed.
Finnegan was taken back to the vet on Saturday, May 17 for a follow-up appointment. Although we did not do an x-ray at that point, the vet changed his bandaging and remarked that the split was still well in place and therefore didn't do any adjustments with that.
Finnegan's next appointment is Saturday, May 31. Stayed tuned for a report on his progress. His next x-ray will likely be around June 21. If his digit doesn't heal on its own, Finnegan may be faced with surgery to have it removed.
