This article was written by Dr. Gillette who is working with Dr. Sarah Shull who is working with Penny LOMA to get back racing again. We have some hop she will be ready for April.
A discussion today with Dr. Sarah Shull got me to thinking about toe sprains. This is an injury that is very common in athletic and working dogs and one I have managed hundreds of times over the past 29 years. It is not an injury typically seen in the general pratice setting. From a professional standpoint, these are rewarding cases because if treated and managed properly, the prognosis is good to excellent with a high percentage of the dogs returning to performance and work. I sat down and wrote an overview on the subject that I uploaded to my SportsVet.com website in the active dog info section. I am hopeful you do not experince this with your dog but if it does happen, maybe this information will be helpful.
