Customer Question

I think its called her "dew claw" the claw on the side of her paw. She was chasing her ball and it some how poked out. It is very sore to the touch. She won't let me near it. Didn't know if I should have it clipped or take her to the vet. Help!
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Strange behavior is often perplexing. I'm sure the Veterinarian can help you. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Her name is ***** ***** she is two years old, Chiwawa mix
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Zoe?
Customer: just that I know she is in pain, stopped playing ball with her until its better. Don't want it to get worse. what should I do?
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.

Hello,

My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years.

Tonight you can give her 5 mg of Aspirin per pound of body weight to aid with the pain, if she is not taking any other medications. I would give her a little something to eat when you give it. A bay aspirin is 81 mgs. as a reference. Make sure you get her into the Vet in the morning so they can clip the nail and give medication if needed. Let the Vet know you gave some aspirin tonight. If I have addressed your concerns, please take amoment to rate my service 5 stars.
