It's maybe my bad that you had misunderstanding.
Before cutting off the toe, we also tried to bandage he's toe up a month. but, it seems that the broken toe occurred long ago, so it could not be healed itself!
In addition, in my culture as well, we DO NOT cut off the toe at HOME.
The surgical operation did in the animal hospital by due process.
I have also paid a lot of money and time to my friend to cure his problem.
And, currently, I am wating for the veterinarian's opinion who did the surgical operation. He told me that he will has a meeting with his colleages, and make a dicision what we can do.
My basenji: Male
Age: 9 months
I'm from South Korea, and I am raising Basenji.
He's one little toe was swelled, and I go to the hospital and took X-rays. But, the doctor said that all the toe has been broken due to the unknown cause..
So, I decided to operate cut off the broken toe.
But after the operation, he's gum was swollen. So go to the hospital again, and got X-rays.
The doctor said that it's very rare case, and he suspected that my basenji got an ossification due to parathyroid abnormality.
Is there anyone who experienced this?
I hope that my friend lives long time.
