Stark BROKE HIS TOE!
So Stark has been having a slight limp on his one back leg for the past couple of days. Probably not super noticeable to others, but those of us that know Stark could tell.
I let it go, thinking that maybe he pulled a muscle while playing in the snow or on the ice.. well, I couldn't sleep last night because I was worried it was HD or DM or something just as horrific (even though Stark had prelims that would of went 'excellent' I was told).
So, brought him in this morning as soon as them opened (6am!) and.... he has a broken toe!
No swelling, no wound.. the vet thinks he was playing on the ice or in the snow when he did it.
He is on 2 weeks of bed rest/crate rest and we will re-evaluate at that time if all is okay within the 2 weeks.
No medication since it is not causing him *that* much pain or limping. No bandage either.
Just waiting it out.
It's his back right leg (if standing behind him), the middle toe - looks almost like his nail/bottom part of toe is over the one next to it.. poor guy!
Will try to get a photo later.
Anyone ever experience this? What did your vet do? How long did it take to heal?
