Lucy's Feet.

So Lucy is home, and busy making friends with Wildey and Rummy. Her and Wildey look so alike!

Her feet were in a bad way. She had one shoe on a front foot that was grown out and loose, the others were long, and one of her backs had chipped on the side so it was really pointy.

Unfortunatley I don't have any proper before pictures. The first day I pulled the shoe and just used my nippers to take off the really ovegrown wall. She is lame in the back but I think it is either because of the chip or maybe an abcess hiding.

So today I set to work trimming them properly. I only thought to get before pictures after I already did one front, lol.

So, befores:

They don't look as bad because as I mentioned, I nipped most of the excess wall off yesterday.


Her chip:

I left this foot a little longer as I think it's the sore one. Could this chip be enough to make her lame?

She had a bit of seperation in her white line on one foot, I dug it out as much as I was game but didn't get it all.

I haven't been too aggressive as I have an advanced trimming clinic in a week, so will get a lot of help and guidance there.

Would welcome any critiques or opinions!

Unfortunately without more info... yada yada. That 'chip' looks like it's potentially seedy & quite high tho. Poss needs to be relieved more around it. Without seeing sole pics & stuff, can't really tell, but it appears her toes may still be quite long(you may be told to back them up & roll a lot more on Mon! ...maybe leave it till then, so you've got something to do there too!<GG>), so it could be the excess toe leverage that has made her lame.
