A street dog asks for help at a veterinary clinic for an injured paw

A stray dog with an injured foot wandered alone into a veterinary clinic, Clinica Vet VIP in Juazeiro do Norte, Brazil, seeking help for an injured paw.
The dog reached the doorway and then slowly made his way inside. Veterinarian Dr. Dayse Ferreira da Silva met the dog at the door and led him into the back for tests. The dog was diagnosed with a tumour on his paw.

He presented me with a paw with a nail embedded in the cushion, causing a lot of pain, which after being cut and medicated, no longer feels pain.

After clinical evaluation, tvt (transmissible venereal tumor) was verified, unfortunately very common in street animals, treatable through chemotherapy.

It is a tick infestation, for which it has already been medicated. Dr. Ferreira da Silva is raising funds to pay for surgery so that the tumor can be removed to give the dog back full use of his paw.
