Ben, the Border Collie dog, Suffers with Carpal Hyperextension and Flat Toes

Ben, the Border Collie dog, Suffers with Carpal Hyperextension and Flat Toes

I first noticed something wasn't right after he came back from the park after a ball chasing session and he was a bit lame then licking at his paws. Initially, I thought he had just staved it/ran too much but it kept happening so took him to the vets.

They straight away diagnosed this due to the fact he’s a huge ball chaser but to confirm they x-rayed him, and confirmed both wrist bones were damaged he then got referred to the vet hospital. They assessed him and said because he wasn't showing signs of pain or reacting to them checking him he would have two options: buy carpal wraps to still allow him a run or have both wrist joints fused together.

I chose to buy the carpal hyperextension wraps for when he is running as the surgery option would leave him with limited exercise options and as he is a young HYPER border collie I didn’t want to limit him just yet, unfortunately he will have to eventually have the surgery. We weren’t offered physio as I don't think it will help him much. He is getting on OK, he walks fine without the wraps in the house, just flat footed sometimes if he has been running the previous day!
