Broken Toe
« on: February 02, 2007, 07:09:30 pm »
Tuesday morning Shasta broke her toe.  Not sure how she did it... I had the back door open for the girls to come in and out as they pleased, but she was outside w/ Mika.  I believe it was due to horseplay.  She's been walking and hobbling around and hasn't kept her from doing much... we have kept her from running around... the vet said that there wasn't much to do since it was one toe and it was being supported by her other toes.  Just have to wait a few weeks for it to heal and keep doing what we're doing.  She's still hobbling, but happy.

Wow.  The vet didn't even splint it or anything?  When Dell broke his toe, there were x-rays and splints and an e-collar and bedrest and the whole 9 yards.  Was kind of expensive! 

Dell wrecked two e-collars in a matter of two days and managed to strip the splint off by about day 4.  Yes, he healed just fine, has no limp. 

Sure wish I'd had your vet!
