Issue with foot on pup
2 Attachment(s)
This may be a silly question, and it may be totally nothing at all but I feel I should ask opinions.
My pup is now around 9wks since before I got her when she was still with the breeder she has had an issue with a swollen toe and the nail not growing properly. I noticed it when I brought her home the foot was swollen the toenail on that side was odd. I asked my vet which they of course said keep an eye on it so the nail doesnt become ingrown. Her nail is still only a nub of what it should be. Below are pictures the first being a pic from the breeder when the pups began to open their eyes. Hard to see them but its a fairly self explanatory issue, any ideas??

Btw its the outside toe on her right of her foot if you can even see it

they really need to get that under control before much more time passes
its like a nail infection
the breeder should have done this for you at the vet

Yes, I was very disappointed when i seen something wrong then noticed it was much worse in the picture i received from the breeder. I felt bad for my pups mom also as she lost nine pups out of that litter & I didn't like i wasn't informed of the milk disease & all that had occurred until I had handed the money over for the pup. I still would have took her regardless but I wanted to ask about this toe thing on here since my vet said to just watch it then failed to look at it themselves on her last visit. I will probably make a trip further out to a bigger vet office to at least get her checked up & receive a second opinion.
