    The claw wasn’t wrapped up at all, we were told short walks/trips to the garden. Well a week later obviously I don’t expect it to be healed but it hasn’t stopped bleeding, doesn’t look in the slightest bit better!

    Should it be wrapped? Is there anything we can do?

    We phoned the vets on Friday and they just said to give it chance to heal/grow back but I’m wondering if it will even grow back? It’s causing her a bit of discomfort and we have blood everywhere!!

    Hope someone has some advice for us?

    Thanks

    Ouch, that looks excruciating! :eek:

    I'm surprised it's not bandaged as foot injuries can be infected so easily, but I'm not an expert. Hopefully someone will be able to advise you - if not, I'd get a second opinion from another vet, to put your mind at rest.

    Thanks for the reply, was pretty shocked with how she was sent home! Good idea I think we’ll visit a different vet asap as it just doesn’t sit right with me!

    Fingers crossed someone else has experienced similar and can give me some advice.

    I agree, that looks sore.
