    Defaulttoe nail surgery Tuesday

    Looks like our 11 yr old lab has to have surgery on Tues to remove her toe nail and possibly the toe too. Last March, she had an issue with her toenail , one morning she woke up and it just started to bleed like made. The vet figuered that she must have hurt it somehow and after a few days, it broke loose and the vet had to pulled it off and let a new one grow back in.

    Now, 5 months later that the new nail has grown in, it is crocked and it hurts her. The xray shows that it looks different from the other ones. So they don't know if it is a nerve problem or what. She has started to put her paw up if she bangs it or we touch it by accident. So she has to have it removed since it isn't getting any better.

    Poor girl, hope she will be ok as she is 11 1/2. Thanks

    I'm so sorry that she has to go through this, but I'd also hate knowing she was in pain. Will be thinking of you and your girl.

    Thanks for your thoughts. It must be the nail as she can push her foot onto the edge of her kennel without pain but just don't touch the nail. It has re grown back in weird.

    We are all set for tomorrow's surgery. We know that it is the right thing to do as she has been lifting her paw up all weekend. Hope she will be ok and not have troubles as she is 11yrs.

    Will let you know tomorrow night how she is.

    Just dropped off my lab for the surgery. They feel that they will have to remove part of the toe as well as the nail as her toe area is very swollen.

    Had to sign an estimate for the surgery.................$923!! More than I expected but not surprised. Vet bills are getting worse these days.

    Will let you know later but thought you would be intereseted to know the costs.

    Rough week as last week we had the $800 bill for the three chewed seatbelts too.

    Love labs!!!
