Radar Broke His Nail

Well Today My Wife had Radar with her at her Gramma's house in Brantford. She was with Radar in the pool (he can't swim yet by the way). So she put him outside the pool and he's walking along the grass and then all of a sudden he let's out this great big shriek and comes running over to my Wife.

Radar had stepped on something and tore the nail on his right foot all the way back. There was a lot of blood all over the place. My Wife called the Vet in the area and they took him in right away. They had to tear the nail out after they gave Radar the Local for the pain. He shrieked like crazy in the Vet's Office My Wife told me.

So Now Radar's the Conehead Hav from Canada with this big cone on his head that makes him wobble when he walks. He's pretty good right now. Radar's running around and limping a bit but other than that no worse for wear.


I'll see him when he comes home tomorrow night.


I hope this is good enough for a new Thread.....

The Vet said he would have to wear the cone for a week. He has a blue bandage on his right foot for now.

My maltese pulled one of her nails almost out on July 4th....it bled and bled. The vet didn't have to remove it just cut it back.....she stayed a couple of days and came home acting like nothing had happened. He said they see a couple of those a week. The dog gets it hung in something and it gets pulled loose. Hope Radar feels better soon!

Yikes.. poor little guy! Do you need to put anything on it so it doesn't get infected?

I cut the nail too short on my maltese once and I couldnt get it to stop bleeding. I was so scared. I put the powder stuff on it, then I took her in outside and it started again... We put it on one more time and I told my husband I was gonna take her to the doggie ER... luckily it stopped! No Cone needed.

Speedy recovery to Radar!

My vet had given my maltese some antibiotics and told me to also put some neosporin on it for a few days. I guess it would depend on the severity.
