Chloe’s on the Mend…

Many of you have been contacting me “off blog” in regards to Chloe’s accident. Long story… short…

At the park on May 16th, Chloe caught the toenails of her back foot in the holes on the metal stairs. She tore her foot loose in a panic and lost 2 nails immediately, with a 3rd one barely attached. It required an emergency visit to the vet to get the two cauterized, and surgery on Tuesday to remove the 3rd one that wasn’t healing. Everything ended up infected and sore.

She is much better now! The “wag” is even back in her tail. She whined while I was folding some laundry, so I finally allowed her to assist. You can see she is a happy camper to be back at work! Thanks for all your well wishes and prayers on her behalf!

  1. Oh my gosh, poor Chloe! I was just cringing as I read what happened to her poor toenails. I’m so glad she’s healing up well now. {hugs}

    Toby, our Cockapoo, had a sort-of similar incident a few years back. He went running out the patio door onto our deck, and he slid toward the stairs (to go down into the grass). Some of the wood was loose and a huge piece, at least 1/3″ thick and about 3-4″ long, went completely through his paw pad. We tried to pull it out and it wouldn’t budge, and we didn’t want to cause any extra damage, so we had to take him to the emergency vet. (It happened at 7 pm on Fri. night and no vets were open!)

    We were there with him til about 1 am and they had to do some surgery to get it out, but luckily he was okay. Had his paw bandaged up just like Chloe. 🙂 It was actually kind of funny — we didn’t know how to describe his injury on the forms so we said he had a splinter. When the vet tech who took us back actually saw his paw, he *recoiled*. LOL!! It really was huge!!

    Hugs to all of you. 🙂
