Kaley is a 9 year old Irish Terrier who was recently diagnosed with a rare immune mediated disease called lupoid Onychodystrophy.
The symptoms of this condition are the losso fo the dogs nails. The claw part of the nail lifts from the kwik (blood vessel) and can be very uncomfortable. All four feet are usually affected. The claw can eventually grow back but can be brittle, mis-shapen, or mis-colored and usually ends up sloughing again.
Kaley is on medication and antibiotics to help reduce pain and infection.
We hope Kaley stays strong and wish her the best on this battle.
