Hi. My name is***** I'm sorry to hear about this situation. Can you help me better to understand what is going on? Is there a wound at the claw that is affected? Can you take a picture of it for me to see what you're seeing?

Customer: replied 12 months ago.
She is in lots of pain. On the front and hind claws. I will see if I can download a picture.

Have you had her to your vet for this condition?

Customer: replied 12 months ago.
Could you see how much she has chewed her claws from the photo?
Expert:  Dr. Bruce replied 12 months ago.

I'm not currently set up to field calls at this time. Is it multiple paws that look similar to this? Is it just that one paw?

Multiple claws on one paw? Or multiple claws involving more than one paw?
