Oh my gosh. I'm shocked Adrienne. Really. How severe that deformity is. And not alot shocks me. Poor poor Ava! Can she walk at all? Oh, that poor baby. Your vet appointment can't come soon enough. I'm so anxious to hear what the doctor has to say.

Don't feel bad. We all do what we have to do. At least you have an appointment coming up and I hope you get some answers. That poor baby.

One little thing that might help is to trim her nails all the way back if you can. So they aren't curling. That might help her a little bit.

It isn't pleasant, but the vets can put them under and trim the quicks way back. Not pleasant but if her quicks are so long to the point her nails curl, that may be something that has to be done, for her own comfort. If the nails aren't curling after being cut it isn't necessary though.

Secondly, WOW. I did NOT imagine it would be that bad AT ALL. Are you sure she didn't get her legs stuck under something? Those feet literally look like they were crushed... If that isn't possible, she is severely severely down on her pasterns, maybe try giving her some vitamin c. I thin dogs just pass any vit c they don't process so can't OD on it so to speak (but you may want to look that up to be sure) and I know they give danes with leg issues vit c. Did this come on suddenly or gradually? I've never seen something like that, unless it was dogs who were injured and not treated so they healed wrong. What she has is not the same as the link to the Great Danes Tracy posted as far as I can tell. Are her back legs at all affected?
Do they have Care Credit in Canada? Because I would really try to get her into a vet and get xrays done. Or even better get her in to see an orthopedic specialist. Thanks so sad, poor girl! That can't be comfortable.

Bless her little heart....that is very upsetting for you and must be very hard for her to get around. I just saw a show on TV that showed a Beagle that had this same deformity and they did surgery on him and it did help a lot of the problem. He was able to get around much better and was not suffering with the discomfort anymore. He still limped a bit but it was not as bad. But it depends on where the problem is and how extensive the surgery it might require. Please keep us informed and I hope the vet do something for her....
