We started the Amoxicillin today. It's still really angry looking and it's starting to go down his paw - the part on the foot next to the dew claw and going down the foot toward the pad is turning red.... and the red (and puffy) toe (dew claw) is now hot

I made an appointment for Wednesday 8am in case the antibiotic doesn't work. I figure that gives him 3 days on it, so if it isn't helping by that point.... then he needs to be seen.

I just have this horrible feeling in my stomach that it will need to come off

So I know in the big scheme of things, this seems little.... But any prayers you could send our way for the antibiotic to kick in would be great

Can Dew Claw be treated successfully? I'm new to this and I have been paying attention. Sending loves and hugs to you both! Gus will be in our thoughts and prayers for a speedy and painless recovery! Go Gus!!!

Aww Thanks you three

"furbutts" made me laugh Thanks! I call him "Gus Gus Wiggle Butt".... and yeah it is hard. He seems okay. But last night he was just restless and trying to get at the paw. Now I know why... it got worse.

Hoping the Amox kicks in... If tomorrow it is worse (I'm okay with no change , but hoping for improvement)...if it is worse I may call in and get him in to see Dr. L - the vet who would do the surgery anyway.....

I just hate knowing he's in pain.

Um... hopefully the antibiotic will help. That is usually a good "go to" for infections. He's needed them for his feet before - he gets sores from allergies, sometimes they get infected. So hoping the oral antibiotic is going to work.

But like Michelle said - her dog had this happen, then it healed, but happened again so they just removed it. At this point if the infection is starting to spread I will just have them remove it. I don't want to risk him getting really sick from a toe....
