Some dogs are constantly irritating/injuring their dew claws, in which case you may want to discuss removing it with your vet. However, if there is bone in the dew claw (as opposed to just flesh and nail), it's actually a pretty difficult surgery to recover from, I've heard. So don't go lightly into it. You may want to try some booties if he'll wear them and it keeps happening. Poor kid!
