Customer: there is no wounds on either, and she is really struggling to walk , but she can not uncurl both paws
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?

I'm sorry to hear about Maggie's difficulties. I think that a visit to your veterinarian is in order but I don't think there is a need to panic until we have more information. If you turn her feet upside down, does she make an attempt to correct it? Can she walk? Is only one side affected?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
one side

Is she able to walk? Did you turn her feet over and see if she can correct them? Have you already taken her in to see the vet?
