Toe Amputation , recovery time

My girl Disco is having the inside toe, # 1 on her right rear paw amputated tomorrow due to a mast cell tumor. I'm wondering if any forum members have dealt with a toe amputation. If so what kind of time frame did it take for your dog to recover? I know more about mast cells than I ever want to know. It did my first golden in 5 years after we took off her first tumor. Please keep you paws crossed for some good pathlogy results for my 5 year old girl. Thanks Alex Pronto and Disco

My Whippet has an outer toe removed earlier this year. 10 days of constant, strict crate rest; sutures came out after the 10 days and then she could slowly resume normal activity over the following two weeks. It was bandaged (changed every other day) for the 10 days and I had to cone her once the stitches came out b/c she wanted to fuss with it after the bandage was off.

She did great -- walked out of the vet's office already baring weight on the foot.

Hugs to your sweet boy!

One of my past dogs had a toe removed. It took about three weeks of healing time before she was back to her normal routine.

I seem to remember it being about the same when my dog had a toe removed several years ago. He never missed it! Hugs to your girl!

Thanks Everyone

The surgery went well. She is being kept overnight. The hospital has 24 hr staffing, vets and lvt's. I'm off from work for the next 8 days to keep an eye on her. Thanks again Alex

She feels too good

Wow, please tell my girl she just had a toe taken off. The good news she's her old self and the lymph node was clear. Dogs are amazing. She was standing and wagging her tail 60 min. post op. Things have gone really well since getting her home. Disco even tolerates the iv bag I put over her bandage to take her out. I'm so relived. Thanks again.http://www.goldenretrieverforum.com/...1&d=1284124177

Rastadog, what did the mast cell tumor look like?

Your girl looks good, what a trooper. I'm glad she's doing well
