Tiny problem a big pain

This is Scrappy who came in to see us on Saturday as he had been limping from a sore paw. Scrappy’s owner had spotted a tiny puncture wound, and his pad was discoloured, indicating he might have a foreign body. After exploration with a needle, and later, sedation to be able to probe deeper, we were able to remove and identify the offending foreign body in Scrappy’s pad. A tiny shard of glass. Ouch. We’re very pleased Scrappy can once again enjoy his dog walks. Mind those poor paws when out and about!
