    Oh poor baby! This happened to my friend's pointer when she was playing with Ruckus once. Her nail got caught on the rug and ripped right off. Blood droplets were everywhere and my friend took her to the vet thinking it was serious, but they just cleaned it and told her to keep cleaning it at home. He'll be ok, just a little sore.

    Question...if his paw/nail got infected, what signs would be there? He started limping today, out of no where. Once he starts walking he is fine, but that initial getting up, he limps. Can I give ibuprofen?

    will he he let you touch the paw? If it is hot, then there is infection. I know there is a human pain pill you can not give... Can't remember which it is. @Manydogs or @Vikinggirl may know

    Yes, I can touch it...somewhat. I didn't notice if it was hot or not. He's in bed now, so I'll check in the morning. I gave him half a rimadyl for tonight.

    Tylenol or Acetaminophen are toxic to dogs. Aspirin can be used very cautiously but I'm not sure what the dose is, and also when using Aspirin, I've read you should use a coated one to protect the stomach. I would ask your vet before using this, and for proper dosing. I hope he feels better soon, and it heals quickly.

    Ouch, poor baby.

    Hope it's not infected.

    Styptic powder in the jar usually has an antibacterial in it. If his foot is not hot or swollen, the powder would help dry the "meaty" part-and help it from getting infected. A salve would be more likely to be licked off. You could give him a baby aspirin. Hope it just heals and doesn't cause any problem!

    He is doing fine today, like nothing was ever wrong with him. His paw is not hot! Who knows what this crazy boy did to himself. I've been keeping his claw clean and using spray on it. I think the rimadyl helped whatever was going on. I am just gonna limit his exercise the rest of the week and see how he does. Thank you for your help!

    I'm glad he's okay, and feeling better today. He probably got it caught on the seat and it pulled. It should heal up okay.
