Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Our girl Suka just started biting/chewing on the dew claw on her left front foot. I distracted her and got her to stop but it really bothered me because she was pulling and biting so hard! I checked it out and it doesn't seem injured or strange in any way. It doesn't bother her it all when I touch it. Should I be worried? Thanks so much!!

Probably not, could just be an itch. But if you notice bleeding, swelling or anything out of the ordinary then I would contact a vet.

Do you trim her dew claws? Some dogs will self trim their nails if they get a bit longer than they like. My girl is one of these. I have to clip her main nails but rarely have to trim her dews because she does it herself.
