What's the Best thing to do with a broken toe?? Front left leg, inside toe. Done because of a sharp turn at high speed. Obviously lots of rest needed but just wandered if anyone knew of any home remedies? Sick of massive vets bills. Thanks.

Arthritis can set in right quick some heal some don't, but I  usually have 2 have them amputated but then I'm well unlucky

He had a X ray not long ago. Turned out to be a sprain. Cost £1400. That's why I'm on here 😀 will look into PDSA. Thankyou.

Hang on.. So, you're on here because you knew the dog had a sprain and you wanted to know how to deal with a broken toe?

Amazes me why folk leave a dog with wounds ,brakes etc and ask for advice on here [BANNED TEXT] going vets ,if your not able to fix it then go vets ,

It's about doing the right thing for the dog and vet the man to see then post on here .

I'm not saying rush down to vet for everything but brocken bones and certain wounds  isn't something to leave to get advice on a forum

Most broken toes heal well enough themselves unless they are proper twisted ect. Give dog plenty rest more than anything, you will then see it starting to Callus up going hard round the break. Would only get it taken off if it doesn’t set properly and is effecting the dogs running.

Vet should of known that it probably was was a sprain. How can they charge like they do for 1 or 2 X rays.
