Dog toe amputation

Rosie recently visited the surgery due to a fast growing lump on her toe. After initial treatment for the lump no improvement was seen and the decision was made to amputate the toe and send the lump off for testing.


Rosie has had a long recovery which has needed substational care with dressing changes every few days on her foot due to excellent care from her owners, Rosie is nearly back to her normal self and is managing fine on her 3 toes.

Dogs are digitigrade animals, meaning that their digits not their heels, take most of their weight when they walk. Because of this, dogs' toe bones are very important. Dog's toes are equivalent to our fingers and toes, although they are unable to wiggle them with the ease that we do.
