I bet Gunner will recover quickly and you will be able to walk him in a couple of weeks.
It was a weight bearing front toe. I'd never even heard of dogs breaking toes before so I trusted the vet to put on the splint and bandage. I wish it could just heal on it's own. How did you treat the second one that broke the one in front?
