Poor Zeph. He’s hurt is paw yet again. This has been an ongoing thing over the years. He jumps up on the side of the hay barn to bark at pesky pigeons and hurts himself.

The hay barn is clad (with corrugated iron) and so the impact on his paw can be harsh if he launches himself at the wall. Actually, it’s one of his toes according to the vet. The vet says the long-term solution is to amputate the toe but we prefer to use Metacam (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory) for 3 or 4 days and put him on couch rest. This always works.

In fact, he hasn’t hurt his paw for at least a year now. Fingers crossed he’s learnt his lesson for another year or two!!
