My sweet seven year old female schnauzer hurt her front left toe two weeks ago. It bled and she limped for days. Now she is licking both of her front paws constantly. What is wrong with her?

Please help! Izzie, my seven year old schnauzer hurt her front left toe two weeks ago. It bled and she limped for days. Now she is licking both of her front paws constantly. In addition, she was diagnosed with schnauzer bumps. What should I do?

NOTE FROM LINDA AND MAX: The injury may have triggered her constant licking. One solution would be to put a plastic E-collar on her so she can't lick it for a couple of days.
Schnauzer Bumps are not serious, they are just like human blackheads.

Izzie …. THE VET..
by: Michele

If Izzie hurt her front left toe 2 weeks ago .. . my Rambo did exactly the same thing.. and my vet called it.. Stubbed Toe Syndrome… He gave Rambo antibiotics as his nail had bent backwards and he was limping and couldn't put pressure on his back paw.. We thought that he might loose his nail, but the antibiotics worked and he's fully cured and back to normal running around with Rebel and Benji.. I suggest you take Izzie to your vet ..
I put a Neck Brace Collar ( for us adults ) on Rambo to stop him licking.. as using an E-Collar wasn't necessary..

Sore toe
by: Gina

I would think about taking her to the vet's if it doesn't improve soon... Our Giant started with a sore toe that he kept licking and it turned out to be a tumour... Apparently, its quite a common occurrence in schnauzers... Hopefully nothing like that for your girl
