Re: What to do about the dew claw?

Lakota almost tore his off, The legiments that attached it to the leg were so stretched, the nail was almost pulled out. I opted to have both dew claws on the front legs removed. I wouldn't have had them removed but his was just flopping on his leg and I and the vet figured if he tore one lose it would just be a matter of time before he did the other one. Besides I didn't want him to be lopsided (giggle). I posted pictures of him in his sweat bands with his basketball in him mouth wondering why I wouldn't play with him.
