This kind of injury is at the top for a not so good return to racing and can take over 6 months to get back to the track if at all if torn or ruptured .

IMO there seems to be a bit more going on if his toes are Clawed .

Personally I would get scan done of the area and check his back around the lower sacral area .

If in doubt get two or three Vets advice .

Allan I have a bitch ( Surley Bassi ) who tore her Achilles' tendon in a trial on a Saturday morning I had her with vet on Monday morning he cemented it, not sure of the process although he done all as I was there, within two months she qualified back in and within another two months was the proud holder of a track record in Longford and runs tonight in a Derby trial stake in Longford, the vet who carried out the work for me was Denis Beary

Definitely worth getting vetted. We gave ours Stem Cell treatment at Sandown for a torn achilles. Kinda expensive but worth every cent when u get the good dogs back to racing. Won two races since so well and truly paid for himself already!

Hi Allen go to your health food shop ,get some vitamin c give half a flat teaspoon per day that will build collagen in the tendon.if you can borrow a laser give 20 second 3 times a week.
Cheers jack.
