update on Emmie
I got good news for Emmie. It IS an overgrown piece of pad. "this is dead skin, just like a callus, and we'll just dremmel it off". And they did. She also had a lesser one on the other hind foot. They praised her like mad and said she did "great'. Nothing more to do. They did dremmel her nails again (I'm always scared 'cause she has black nails, so I don't take enough off). My vet said that this is not something that happens often, but it is no big deal.
