That was a stupid description ... I was a little freaked ... I could have said dew claw to begin with.Yes, dew claw .... but I thought it was a whole upper joint issue because of the way it looked.
All is well now. I have to stop calling him my foster dog though! After the check I wrote to the vet, he's all mine
His dew claw had partially torn out .... the vet just removed it
He was such a good boy though ... very sweet and patient w/the vet and tech. He's now had his entire little body checked out .... including teeth. He has bad teeth so I came home armed w/a tooth brush and chicken flavored toothpaste
Next week he has an appointment for dental work. I'm going to have a full blood work up done on him done at the same time.
I have to call the rescue people and let thm know Max has found a home!
