Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello! My name is ***** ***** it will be my pleasure to help you with your dog today.
How old is Freddie?
What kind of dog is he?
Does he put weight on that foot?
Does he act painful when you move that toe?
When did this happen?
Any swelling in the area?
Great. Thanks for the additional information. I really appreciate it.
Of course it's impossible to know if this is a fracture or just a significant bruise without an x-ray, but since it's not swelling and will (but prefers not to) put weight on it makes me think it's just a bruise.
At this point, I think the best thing to do is to keep an eye on it. If he begins having swelling in that area, refuses to put weight on it, or if he seems to become more painful, then you should have your vet take a peek at it tomorrow, just to be safe.
I hope this helps
