My dog somehow managed to rip his nail off, leaving the quick completely intact and not bleeding. I have no idea how he did this as he never made a peep. I will put a call into the vet tomorrow, but any suggestions on this?
My dog did that and it was fine. I'm trying to remember if we even took her to the vet. Oh, yes, we did. The whole nail was split so the vet cut off the hard nail part that was hanging off so it wouldn't catch and tear. He sent her home with the quick exposed and before long, it was all healed (the exposed part dried/scabbed) and as her nail grew out, the quick receded within it. And you, know, it never seemed to bother her.
