|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.

Can't believe I didn't think of there being a Siberian Husky forum until last night. I'm hoping that someone out there can help me out with this. It certainly has me baffled.
First, here's a picture of my 8-year old little girl, Dakota:
A couple of months ago, I noticed that one of her nails looked strange. Here's what it looks like:
I didn't see an option to rotate the image.
Anyway, you can see in the picture that there is some strange growth on the top of her nail. It goes all the way into the paw. Her actual nail is underneath and looks fine. I have taken her to the vet. He did a fungal culture that came back negative. I still gave her an oral fungal medication for about a month that didn't seem to improve her condition. I, then, gave her a prescription bacterial medication for a month. That had no effect on whatever this is. I have also rubbed OTC Lamisil on this, as well as, soaked her paw in a Listerine bath and epsom salt bath. Nothing has worked. The vet is stumped as well. He believes that I may need to have it amputated. The paw pad and joint are swollen. There doesn't appear to be any trauma. The vet also x-rayed the paw and which showed no signs of injury to bones or joint or any indication of cancer. It doesn't seem to hurt her when she jumps around and walks, but she does limp when walking on a hard surface (looks to be mainly from the awkwardness of the nail). I never see any indications of pain though.
So I'm hoping that someone out there has seen this before and can help me out with a cure. I definitely don't want to have part of her paw amputated and later find out that there was a simple cure.

Thanks Twister. I, too, hope they would just remove the nail. We will be making a visit to the vet either tomorrow or Monday.
