    We decided to spruce things up and fix some things under the hood. If you notice any issues, feel free to contact us as we're sure there are a few things here or there that we might have missed in our upgrade.

Broken Toe

Little Dog
Brooklyn broke her pinky toe on her front leg. The vet said he couldn't splint it, all i really heard was Blah Blah Blah Broken Toe. She's on some meds for swelling and pain and her activity is restricted (no, running, jumping, walking) for what could be the next 6 weeks. Anyone have any experience to share with broken toes? Should I get another opinion about the splint situation?

Gypsy had a broken toe on one of her rear legs a couple years ago. The vet kept it splinted a while, I can't recall exactly how long. I think a couple weeks, at least.

I'd get another opinion. My vet just put a splint over her whole paw, so all of her toes were held, not just the one, then wrapped it up.

I have worked for Vets that for 1 broken toe would not splint. Just restrict activity and pain meds.

However if the metacarpus is broke they might. We have a dog (Min Pin) at work that just broke her foot she broke all the metacarpul bones and we did splint that.
