Has a swollen first...

Has a swollen first toe front left paw. 2 yr old Germansheperd. Vet claims could be cancer n wants to amputate toe. No fever but has given antibiotics in case it is an infection. Please help. Thank u

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. There are all sorts of infections the dog can pick up. I'll have you talk to the Veterinarian who'll sort out what is wrong and help you decide what to do about it. What is the dog's name?

Lobita. Translates to small wolf but she is big

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Lobita?

No just that toe is very sensitive. She remains constantly inside her ingloo. I have 3 other dogs. She does not play or run with the other dog her age
