Separating toes with pain

614 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  BarnesDobies
I have a 9 year old Doberman shepherd mix. About 6 months ago one toe on his front right foot decided it didn't want to hang with the group any more and started sticking out to the side a bit. It didn't seem to bother him and the bet didn't seem concerned. This morning he could barely make it down the stairs and I noticed now the toe on the opposite side of the same foot has done the same thing. He seems to be in a bit of pain in that foot though don't know if it's related to this toe thing. Has anyone experienced this before?

I have heard of what is called "dropped toe" (flexor tendon rupture) but if I were you I'd have it checked by your Vet if he's in pain!
