He said a plate will be put in Joey's foot and the bone will be fused. He said that would get rid of the pain and he will be able to run and play like a normal dog. We just have to wait and see what the specialist says before we proceed.
He is now on three medications and still needs the ice packs several times a day. I'm glad that I work from home because it makes caring for him so much easier.
