    He favored it and would limp a bit. Your baby's looks clean. If the groomers struggled with him, he may have pulled something, or pulled away when they were clipping his nails. Keep an eye on it, give him baby aspirin, and keep an eye on it. If he's still limping Wednesday morning, call your vet for sure and get in before the start of the holiday.

    Canelo gives groomers a hard time, he hates nail trims, even if I do it. I do his a tiny bit at a time so it takes several days to trim his nails. He seems to be OK with a tiny bit at a time. I've only asked my vet's techs to clip his nails and he does good with them after trying once at Petsmart and talk about the groomers struggling with them, oh my word he was so hard headed, it was a physical challenge. You are on the right track.

    He still a little limping. Gave him baby aspirin last night and definitely helped. I'll keep an eye on him again today. Thank you

    I accidentally clipped the quick on Penny's nail before- it bled for 2 days off and on. After that I bought a dremmel. My neighbor is a groomer so she showed me how to do it. Both Penny and Lockjaw are used to it now. Lockjaw tolerates it, and Penny just lays back and let's me do whatever I want! Lol - would he let you clip or dremmel down his nails?

    I tried with the clippers. They both think it's play time with mum! I'll buy the dremmel.

    Treating a Broken Dog Nail






    Treating a broken dog nail can be easy when ordered into a step-by-step process. If the nail is not broken, simply trim off the ragged edges with a nail file or a dog nail trimmer, depending on how far away the break is from the quick. If the nail is broken or split or [COLOR=#F3933B !important]cracked to the quick and bleeding, follow this guide:

    How to Treat a Broken Nail

    1. Apply a coagulant such as styptic powder, [COLOR=#F3933B !important]flour[/COLOR], or cornstarch to stop the bleeding.
    2. Apply an over-the-counter antibiotic cream or gel, such as Neosporin to prevent infection and soothe the wound.
    3. Bandage the area, securing it with surgical tape to prevent your dog from licking off the ointment and to prevent dirt from getting into the wound.
    4. Monitor your dog for the next couple of days and don't let him walk on the cement for the next two or three days (or the scab will scrape off).

    How to Treat a Split Nail

    Like a broken nail, a split toenail can easily be treated without going to the vet.

    1. Trim off any rough edges with a nail file. Make sure not to use a dog nail trimmer, because this could make the crack worse.
    2. If it's bleeding, [COLOR=#F3933B !important]pack[/COLOR] on some coagulant, such as styptic powder, flour, or cornstarch and apply an over-the-counter antibiotic.
    3. Watch it and keep it trimmed until the split grows out.
    4. Applying a hardening clear nail polish can keep the split nail together until it grows out. Take care not to let your dog lick the nail polish while it is still drying.

    Some Nail Care Tips

    • If the paw gets red and sore, soak it in Epsom salted water, careful not to let your pet drink the water.
    • If the nail isn't healing, or your dog begins to limp, you should make an appointment with your vet.
    • If your dog picks at the tape on a broken nail and tries to tear it off, cover the paw with a sock and secure it to the leg with surgical tape.
    • 1/2 tsp of [COLOR=#F3933B !important]olive oil[/COLOR] mixed into your dog's [COLOR=#F3933B !important]food[/COLOR] everyday will strengthen his nails and prevent future breaks and splits.
