My dogs isn't quite as big as yours but I want to get it resolved before it gets bigger. My dog is a rat terrier named Matia and she was also limping when I first found it. At the first vet visit, we got some antibiotics and pain relivers (anti-inflamatory)and now she's not limping, but she's still finishing up the pain relievers, so I don't know. This other vet said to let it run it's course for the next two months and if it spreads over her whole toe, then she'll take the toe off, but to do nothing now. I'm praying...

Please let me know.

Thanks and God Bless you and your baby too.
Your vet would rather let it grow, and then amputate the whole toe rather than removing it while it's small???? I think I'd be getting a second vet to look at it.
