Mary Ann, can you put something on Pucci's foot to protect it and maybe cushion it? When Kiefer tore his nail up as a puppy, I bought a few baby sock and put them on, and he was ok with that. You could put a sock on his foot, and wrap some of that athletic tape that sticks to itself, but nothing else, around it to hold it up. He might appreciate the extra padding on his foot right now.
Pucci is beginning to put some weight on his paw, and alternates between walking like a dog and hopping around like a bunny rabbit. When he does put weight on his paw, his nails fan out - the Vet yesterday said that indicates that there's still swelling.
Glo - I appreciate your suggestion, but Pucci won't go for that. Fortunately, there's nothing broken, there are no wounds - "simply" bruising and swelling. I still can't begin to figure out what he did for this to happen. :dizzy
