    grass seeds are a pain in the bum :mad:you might no them as the long shoots that grow in the grass none as flea darts my friends dog got one, and because they are barbed the go in and travel round until they find a way out as they cant go backwards to come back out very painful too, the have to have a op to remove them as they can course trouble.:(

    just got back from the vets the cause of these infections are the same but for different reasons ,as the fist dog had a foreign object in between the toes the second dog lost her drew claw a few days ago and it was bleeding since then i have let both of them swim in the floods in the feild where i run them ,They both got infected in that flood water via there injurys ! there is allso houses that have there soak-a-ways in that feild where the flood water is ,so theres sewage runing in that flood water as well :eek: this is what me and the vet seem to thinK:(
