Woke up this morning to a limping dog and after much poking and prodding as there was nothing obvious we saw a wee bit of glass in her paw, she is fine in herself and still eating, I have phoned the vet and dp is taking her down at 10.20, just looking for advice and sympathy sad

both my dogs have had this more than once and each time they had to have a general in order to get it out - it was always a teeny sliver so impossible for me to even see and always quite deep - I get quite worked up about the amount of broken glass around - obviously if I see it, I avoid it but there is loads and it is the tiny shards that you can't see. Good luck. Did you get it all out - is she ok now? xxx

I'd like to know why this sort of thing always happens on a Sunday or a bank holiday !

The vet thinks he got it all out, she has stopped limping, chewing and licking the paw, he said to bring her back in a few days if she starts limping again and they will give her a general and slice open her paw and have a look about.

Floral I have no idea, they last time she needed the vet was on a sunday too, she had taken a reaction to something on her paws after having her in the fields, thankfully today the nice kind vet didnt charge us a penny smile
