    Update on archie... He finally has no bandages on and is doing very well on lead walks although can tell he is dying to have a good whizz around :)

    He now just has review in 1 month with greyhound vet... so he is getting there

    Thanks again for all the lovely posts :thumbsup:

    That's brilliant news! My greyhound Tiny shredded his foot and had to have the big pad stitched back on and part of his toe stitched back together and after a few weeks in bandages it was all healed - no ill effects at all, it took a big longer for pad to grow back properly but you can't even see a scar now.

    I'm glad you managed to get a second opinion, a month really isn't long enough to make a decision about how it's healing. :) :thumbsup: :luck:

    Absolutely, and it is certainly too early to opt for amputation. It is frightening to think that some vets would amputate without giving the dog chance to heal. :rant:

    So glad Archie will be fine :thumbsup:
