    She hurt her back foot a couple weeks ago.
    Today i noticed a abnormality on her hurt toes.
    Middle fingers are not properly healed.
    I inserted a photo of both back feet.
    You can see thicker and abnormally shaped fingers:(-white spotted fingers
    We will see a ortho this week.

    does she limp ? when you manipulate does it hurt her ? try to manipulate it without letting her know it's what your doing …......if she doesn't limp and doesn't show signs of pain when you touch it , the foot doesn't appear very swollen , minimally at most ……. myself personally i'd just keep an eye on it , make sure it doesn't progress ……….

    They don't look badly swollen to me either. How did she originally hurt her toes and were they more swollen before? I agree with Marke to keep an eye on it and if she starts showing discomfort, or the swelling increases, take her in.

    I think she hit her toes to kerb at our backyard.
    It happened 3 4 weeks ago.
    She could not use her foot then but our vet did pain killer and edema reliever injection.
    After a week she could walk but she was setting that foot differently.
    Now she walks almost same with both feet.
    but that swelled part on photo is hard structure.
    Today orthopedist believes it was cracked and some hard tissue is formed there.
    X-ray was on maintenance so we could not see exactly.
    Those fingers are somewhat a little less mobile.
    I dont know what will happen as she grows.

    Did you ever get x-rays?

    Our last dog had a dislocated toe with a potential break... it happened over Christmas, so by the time we had it all checked out, the bone was mending at it's odd angle and it was too late to "reset" the toe - and the doc said that setting a toe might not take anyway, even if we had done it quickly. We were given two options: amputate the toe, or leave it alone and prepare for arthritis later in life.

    We went for option 2, and he never appeared to be bothered by it again. We did lose him early to a cancer (9yrs old), so not sure when/if arthritis ever would have been a concern.

    She is much better.
    But as previous post may have problems as she gets older.
    No pain or discomfort for now.
