Broken nail

Help! My sweet dog broke her nail down past the quick. It has a catch. ICANT cut it. How do I protect it until it grows out?

This happen to Vino about a month ago. He was bleeding bad so we took him to emergency room (it was 11pm) the vet gave us some pain meds and bandage it , stayed on about a week. He couldnt get it wet. he is just growing it out.

How is your puppy doing?

I forgot to mention the most important part - the vet gave him local anesthesia to numb the pain.

I think a broken nail is quite painful. One of my corgis broke one down to the quick once. It bled like crazy. Eventually healed but never grew out again.

I had a B.C. rip a couple of his nails off at different times. (He tried to climb a tree after a squirrel. Idiot dog.) The vet had to wrap it because he wouldn't leave it alone. He kept licking it and causing it to bleed again.

Weird & wacky suggestion. If it isn't bleeding and causing too much problems, what about those nail caps? I know that they are usually for cats but I have seen them advertised for dogs. Yeah, I know - I am crazy.

TTFN,
Pam

Thanks everyone. Thankfully Chicka's nail isn't bleeding. I just happened to notice. I am going to bandage it and see if she will leave it alone. I just dread the thought of her ripping it...the pain ...and bleeding.

Scuds entire nail ripped off. I took him to the vet. they bandaged it up and gave him antibiotic to stop infection.

I hope she is ok!!

Fortunately, it will heal quickly. Frolic and Meg both broke one all the way off.

Bear's nail also ripped last summer. I'm a worrier so off to the vet we went. They also bandaged him right up
