Betsy’s sore paw

Betsy's sore pawThis is Betsy, who was seen at our Southam surgery this month with a painful foot.

Thorn from Betsy's sore paw

She had a swelling between her toes which hadn’t improved after a course of antibiotics and anti-inflammatories.

Vet Mark was concerned that there might be something stuck in the wound stopping it from healing.

Betsy was given an anaesthetic so that Mark could have a really good look in her paw. The reason for Betsy’s poorly foot soon became clear- a thorn nearly 2cm long!

Betsy had a bandage on her foot for a few days to keep it covered. The bandage is now off and she is a lot more comfortable and happy with the thorn gone!
