So Gordy our Large, likely Giant Schnauer has toe infections in each inside toe on both front feet. This likely started as Yeast Infections (which I tried and tried to treat) but got worse (because he licks and licks and licks) Anyway, one vet told me they had to come off, and quickly quoted $400 per toe (yep, got a second opinion..... ) He is on 2 different antibiotics(clindamycin and enfrolexin) and an antifungal medicine(ketaconazole). We had to cut back on the antifungal, it was upsetting his stomach and I was getting ill, having to wake up at 2 am to clean up dog puke We just did two weeks on the meds and I stopped today to get a second round , about croaked as it was almost $80, that is just the antibiotics, we cut the antifungal down to 1/3 what he was supposed to get. I guess the first time, the fact he stayed for two days at the vets, they sedated him to clip his feet and get a closer look and the meds, I thought $150 was a bargain. I never looked at my bill and realized how much just the meds were I just hope that after this round he is declared healed , no more infection, cause it is almost as expensive as the surgery at this point It will all be worth it as long as he can keep his toes, the one on the right will never have a nail again, and possibly the one on the left will be nail less, but it will be better on him to keep them.
