    Default Broken toe nail :(

    Hmmm so last night I saw something black n shiny on the floor well since I have the flu I kinda pretended like I didn't see it bcuz I didn't wanna pick it up lol then porky woke up n decided to play with it so I finger swept her jowels n sure enough it was there it took me a second to realize what it was.........one of her nails n not a sheath like 1/2 of a whole nail!!!!! So I chased her down n inspected it is a nail from her back paw n it broke almost at the quick it's very tender n she won't let me look at it without almost hogtying her lol anyone ever had this happen??? Any ideas what may have caused it???? Oh n nothing to do with the nail but my idea for dehydrating food is on hold till I feel better butttttttt she's finally eating blue buffalo YAY no more kibbles n bits

    Well she got lucky it didn't get into the quick, because it would have hurt a lot more. She must have caught it on something.

    When Brutus got his cast taken off his entire toe nail came off, the vet told us not to worry about it. The nail will grow out on it's own it time like a person

    Amber got one of her back toenails caught in a small hole in the drain on the patio once and broke it to the quick. It scared me and she bled for a good little while. I wrapped it but she refused to have it bandaged. She lost the toenail but a new one grew back good as new. It took a few weeks but they grow back. Good luck.

    Something similar happened to one of Rook's dew nails. Have no idea how it happened, and he didn't want me messing with it, but it eventually grew back just fine. Good luck!

    Broken toenails are a specialty of Schultz's (he's had more than I can count)...keep it clean, even when they complain its tender....his have always grown back...having the toenails dremeled instead of clipped has helped cut down on broken nails overall....

    My goal in life is to be as good a person as my dog thinks I am ~ author unknown

    I won't do Porkys lol I take her to her vet n they clip them for like $10 of course she's a 55lb wiggle worm so even if I learned how to properly cut them she wouldn't cooperate!!!!!!

    I think I found out how she did hers we have I guess what they call a burpee carpet (idk what it is lol) but all the fibers r looped back into the pad n I found one that was pulled out last night but still looped so I think she got her nail caught in it!!!! Her nail seems fine I swabbed it with an alcohol pad last night n put some neosporin on it n she didn't fight me so it must feel better

    Berber carpet I think is what you mean. They have a loop to them that she could very well have caught her toenail on. Glad it isn't as tender as it was.
