OK, I have another question. Bailey is 5 months post opt. (6 months Aug 7th.) We have competed 5 rounds of carboplatin and the fifth took her way down and we are not longer doing any type of chemo. We will not do x-rays this and I'm not sure if we will further down the line.
I want less stress and QUALITY!
OK, that's all for today.

Tracy you can post as many questions as you'd like. What exactly do you mean by sensitive? Does she flinch when you touch it? And as far as cool, you mean when you feel it with your hand, right?
I think that most Tripawds are sensitive in that area, some more than others. The cool temp I'm not sure about but as long as there isn't any discoloration I wouldn't worry. Mention it to your vet next time you have the chance though, it's a great question.
