How is Cleatis doing today? We had a dog lose the entire horn of a nail a while back--we live far from the vet and they told me I could just clip the horn off but I was a wuss So I drove the hour into town and the vet was kind enough to take our money to remove the nail horn and it really was an anticlimax and only took (literally) two seconds. So that part of it sounds normal to me.

The odor on Sunday would have me worried, though, since it's usually a sign of infection. Has that part at least resolved totally? At some point did the vet want the bandage removed? As I recall from Belle's nail injury we only had the bandage on for a day or two. I also don't recall her feeling much pain from it after the bandage came off. I wonder if the bandage is irritating the toe?
