Old setter growing a nail in her tail
 
Hi I'm new on here
I have just discovered a toe nail growing in poppy's tail,
She is 11 1/2 years old and ageing very quick, she gets very stressed out when going tothe vets also cause of her age I really don't want to put her through a visit as we have talk things over (hubby and me) and have decided we wont put her through any surgery.:(
Was just wondering if anyone else had have this happen with their dog??:confused:
Would be very gratefull for any advise x

We've found them growing on our setter's face: [URL="http://www.pets.ca/forum/showthread.php?t=49663"]http://www.pets.ca/forum/showthread.php?t=49663[/URL]. Must be a setter thing. :D

Anyway, the good news is that we were later told they often [I]do [/I]resolve by themselves and fall off.

So...um....can we get some pics of your Poppy? :fingerscr
