Hi everyone. I have a 7 yr old spayed shorthair, Emmie. While I was dremmeling her nails, I came across one nail that I couldn't do, 'cause the pad seemed to be growing up toward the nail. I have heard of nails curving down into the pads, but never the pad overgrowing toward the nail?? I have an appointment for the vet on Tuesday, but I wonder if any of you know anything about this condition? This is the pup that has focal epilepsy and is on phenobarbital and potassium bromide. The condition doesn't seem to bother her, ie no limping. She doesn't like you to 'mess' with it, but doesn't seem painful in any way.
