Well the male chihuahua has irritated his dew claw and it is swollen and it has been wrapped with what my vet reccomended is called vet wrap and you can pick it up at petsmart for like three bucks and it comes in handy for the birds which you readers know I have too so . It is usually the male chihuahua who hurts himself on a regular basis and the bird who plucks a blood feather and gets wrapped too . I swear between the male dog and the bird they keep my hopping like I had small children at home again . There is never a dull moment in my house . So be carefull out there among them english .
