    I saw one of my Appenzellers looking sorry for herself yesterday and watched her but she seemed to pick up in the day
    I thought maybe she is cold -10C at night but today she was limping
    On looking at her foot the rear toe and the pad looked slightly enlarged to the other one
    I cleaned it up ,put some antibiotic cream on and put in a cage with some anti biotic in the water
    not sure what else to do any ideas please
    What could it be
    all her room mates are fine
    Dont want to lose her as they are rare here in Bulgaria

    Could be she got it stuck some place, pulled it free and now has a small injury. Or maybe a splinter in the toe. I hope it is not a frostbitten toe.




    I would keep an eye on it, and if it gets worse - post a picture.


    I hope she is walking fine tomorrow. [​IMG]
