Elderly dog cries in pain as he walks on “longest claws our staff has ever seen”
Since Docena’s nails were so long, they had to be cut very carefully. Also, some tumors had to be removed under anesthesia. The shelter reminded everyone that more than a quarter of female dogs that are not spayed will develop at least one mammary tumor in their lifetime. These tumors are often cancerous, so it is a good idea to have a dog spayed or neutered if necessary.
They also discovered that the dog has a leg deformity that she was probably born with. It does not seem to cause her any problems as she actively uses the leg. As Docena slowly recovers and begins to feel the joy of walking without very long nails, she is being cared for by the Humane Society staff. We wish her well in her recovery and remind our readers to always check their dog’s claw length. Your veterinarian or pet groomer can assess if it is time to trim them.
