    Default Bubba may be tough as nails but...his nails aren't! Anyone have this problem?

    Took Bubba and the other 2 dogs for a long walk today..about an hour. I walk on the sidewalk for the most part. I noticed the last 10 min or so of the walk, Bubba kept to the grass. He didn't want to walk on the sidewalk. This is when I noticed I was being a really bad dog owner for not noticing this sooner. On walks,I make all 3 dogs stay next to me, and never ahead of me. Well, I happened to look over at Bubba to understand why he kept wanting to go in the grass and noticed that his nail on his left paw was all bloody! He had blood splasters all over his belly and back legs! I felt horrible. One of my other dogs has white nails but never has this problem. I think maybe it's because he shuffles his feet so much. Poor guy! It took me quite a while to get the bleeding to stop and it still seems to be sore today! ANyone else have this happen? I'm throwing in a couple pics I took today when Bubba decided he was afraid of the ball blowing around in the pool.

    did he grind his nail down to the quick or did he pull like a dewclaw out? our boys drag their nails but have never hit the quick to cause bleeding...however they are extremely short from the dragging. do you have styptic powder? it stings like hell but will stop the bleeding. jameson has a tendency to pull his dewclaw out once a year...bleeds like hell

    other than that booties? if he's like our boys you will put them on and he will limp around thinking something is wrong with his feet

    @nyerathrt no. not his dew claws. He wears down his 3rd nail, on both sides, the most. looks like the other foot was seconds away from doing the same thing! Back feet not a problem. I guess I need to train him to pick up his feet and not drag them like quazi motto (sp?). ha ha! never tried booties but might be a good idea. Would look pretty rediculous walking in florida with booties on though! lol

    Bubba is totally handsome! I tried booties on one of my Bulldogs that I used to take rock climbing (very gentle rock climbing); it was a wrestling match getting them on and he'd have them off in 2 seconds!

    I agree with Sarah!

    HRH drags her feet too. The front two nails don't stay polished more than a day if we go on a walk.

    She hasnt ever ground them to the point of being sore or bloody. But then we haven't ever walked an hour cause I'd be bloody and sore.

    Tubs also drags his feet when he walks. He has never worn down his nails like what you are experiencing though. I can always tell when his nails need to be cut though, by the way they sound on the floor....like right now, but I have to wait until my daughter gets home because it is a 3 person job....my husband holds him, my daughter distracts him with treats and I cut! Hope your wrinkly man feels better soon!

    Bubba is beautiful. I don't have too much to offer either except to say that Wilson has floppy loose feet when he walks. I keep his nails trimmed pretty short and trim them every two weeks. He also has white nails it their quite hard. How old is Bubba? Just curious because I don't see how he can get any more handsome, he's truly a beauty!

    @bubbaisapig he is indeed very handsome, you could of shown him for sure. Yes I have that problem with my Peggy Sue. she will drag the front paws as she steps and then slap them down, and yes we have had bloody paws from the concrete. I found that corn starch or even Flour will stop the bleeding like a coagulant. and it doesn't burn like the sticks. I've noticed that handsome mug from the very first time I saw him. If he has his feet wet alot, from hanging out pool side, the nails may be a bit soft. Just a thought.
