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.

Bodhi picked up a rock in his left paw on a walk. He started to limp. Of course, he wouldn't let me get the rock out until I got home and added two more hands to hold him down. Then he started to limp on the other side. I thought it was overcompensation and it would pass. This AM, the limp was worse, so off to the vet we went. The vet discovered a cut in his right paw. Now he's looking at three days of taking it easy, walking in a booty, antibiotics and epsom bath soaks of the offending paw. Ever tried to soak a husky's paw for ten minutes? Ha-ha-ha.

I wonder how long you could get him to sit still with soaking the paw if you have a popsicle or something for him to lick at?

Well. I'd say that two out of three isn't bad. Smile er, that's really three out of four, isn't it?

I *never* liked to see my mother coming at me with a wash cloth, meant that she was serious about washing behind my ears!!! And she could be *rough*!!

Hi Michael,

I sure hope Bodhi heals quickly. I went through a heck of an ordeal when Cayenne was younger and got her toes stuck together with pine tree sap. The vet had to cut the toes apart and an infection resulted. She had antibiotics, soaks, wraps, a boot, airing out time... It seemed like it would never heal until I took her for cold laser therapy. It was miraculous! One treatment made a huge difference, but we went for three treatments to be sure she was fully healed. I know lasers might sound like nonsense, but the results are the proof. Good luck.

Thanks all! He's getting better. Did a 2.5 mile walk today with bootie on the affected paw. No limping.
