Broken toe?

November 22nd, 2010, 10:58 AM
What are the symptoms of a broken toe on a dog? My 7 months old boxer was playing in the back yard. When she came in she was hopping on three feet and it seems like her outside toe is loose on her back leg. She is not complaining about it or bothering it at all but will not put any pressure on it. I checked for debris in her pads and found nothing. I am unable to get her to the vets until tonight. Does anyone know what it looks like of the symptoms?

It could well be a broken toe, lunabean. Our Macie broke one on a front paw last year and spent some time in a cast but it healed beautifully with no apparent after-effects. (Running through my anti-jinx routine because every time I make that kind of a blanket statement, something goes wrong! :rolleyes: :laughing: But so far, no apparent after-effects.)

How did the vet visit go last night? Hope your boxer is on the road to recovery! :goodvibes:
