    Default Fractured toe

    My granddog, Dexter, has a fractured toe!! We don't know when or how it happened, but he is at the vet's this weekend. Normally, Dexter stays here with me on the weekend while my daughter is out of town, but yesterday, when he was here, he did not feel well and stayed in his bed all afternoon. She took him to his vet this morning to have him checked out because he cried off and on all night with her. He has a fractured toe and they are doing lazer treatment on it for the next 3 or 4 days. If this does not work, he will need a cast. This concerns me because he is 7 months old and has a hairline fracture of his shoulder and a fractured toe. This seems odd to me for him to have two fractures at such a young age. He has already had surgery for cherry eye in both eyes. It just seems odd to me, but he is such a sweet, loving baby. His breeder, from my research, is very well known with great breeders. On the other hand, my baby's breeder is not as well known. I paid much less for mine, but my daughter's breeder has been breeding for 30 years and I know many people that have purchased puppies from her. I have to believe it is just coincidental.

    I bet that really hurts him! Broken toes are so painful for people..poor Dexter. It does seem like a lot of fractures for a young pup..I have heard of strange breaks and dislocations happening from seemingly innocent things..like jumping off a sofa, but this seems excessive. I hope he feels better...

    I will tag @Davidh..he might have some insight for you.

    Oh good gosh, poor Dexter. I wonder if he jumped off the bed, couch, falling off either, etc. That would be quite alarming to me if any of mine got a factured shoulder...toe not so much but shoulder? Hope he doesn't need a cast.

    Aww poor baby Dexter. Love his name by the way, is he named after the series? Did he maybe fall off a bed or couch and land the wrong way without you knowing?. I hope the laser treatments work, and he doesn't need a cast, and that he heals quick. Keep us posted and give Dexter extra love and kisses from us.

    Holy crap. what are they doing to that poor boy? He must have fallen off a tall bed or down some stairs. He's going to be in some pain for awhile and I hope the laser treatment helps. he definitely needs some rest and keeping him quiet is going to be hard. If she has kids they need to leave him alone until he can heal properly. Please keep us posted on his progress.

    As far as his shoulder, I do know that he jumped out of her car about the time that occurred. However, with the toe, we have no clue what happened. There are no stairs in her house and he has never been on any of her beds. No one admits to stepping on him; however, he and Zeus play very rough together. I have never heard him whelp like he was hurt, but I could tell when he came on Thursday for a play day he went straight to his bed and growled when Zeus tried to get him to play. I knew immediately that something was wrong with him and called for an appointment with his vet. She said last night he cried all night and she took him in today. They are keeping him this weekend while she is out of town to give him the lazer treatments as well as to confine him. I cannot handle him and keep him quiet with Zeus! We both hated to leave him with the vet all weekend but we decided it was best for him in the situation. Also, I have her three children and Zeus and he needed more quiet time than is available at my house for the weekend!! He is here so much, I worry about him as if he is mine!!

    That just means you're a good Grandma. I hope Dexter gets better soon, and that the treatments work well. Then he can go back to romping the way a proper bulldog should.

    Well hope he fells better after some rest this weekend. He could have broken his toe playing, he could have gotten it stuck in a rug or something and turned. Poor boy, get well soon.

    Maybe he can be crated to keep him quiet when others are around.

    I feel very sad for poor Dozer

    That car wasn't moving when he fell out of it, was it?
