I was clipping Misha's claws this afternoon and noticed that the callus she had on her one of her foot pads seems to have grown outward.  I checked her pad to make sure that it hadn't grown larger.  Instead it has grown outward and almost under her claw.  In fact it looked like a little claw growing upward but the tissue was callus.  She has been limping and I figure it's arthritis as she walks perfectly normal after she moves around a bit.  But now, I'm wondering if the callus is the cause of her limping.  I am going to take her to the vet as soon as I can arrange an appointment. 

In the meantime, I'd be grateful for any and all advice. 

All the best,

I don't have any advice but it could be why she has been limping.  I wonder why she would have a callous there.  Is it something she is doing repeatedly with that foot?

Let us know what the vet says.

No worries.  I'll make an appointment for her this week and have that callus checked out.

All the best,
