Customer Question

I have a Yorkie whose back right paw is swollen on top. This condition has been about two weeks. Took him to local vet and did X-ray . Couldn't find anything. For $1.100.00 they put him to sleep and explore what problem is. Might add that his claws are growing upright instead of down.
