    I noticed my 9 week old Cochin was limping this morning. She has what appears to be a broken toenail. it is bleeding and I cleaned it with soap and water, hydrogen peroxide, and put antibiotic ointment on it. It will not stop bleeding-any suggestions??

    I seem to notice a pattern of very few responses to my questions. I wonder if it is because there is not a little yellow chick by my posts?

    Put flour or corn meal, etc... on it, it will act as a bandaid. I would be very careful with the peroxide as it can damage tissue if to strong or used to often. Toenails generally heal fine, they just look nasty for a while. Good luck

    I agree corn starch or flour will stop the bleeding after that she should be fine...

    Thanks so much for your responses. I really appreciate it. This is our first injury and she is one of our favorites. Have a great day!

    And please do not think that folks are trying to ingore you ... Its just that this site is soo busy that posts get hidden quickly.... And i think the reason you arent seeing the lil yellow chick is because you made the post, i think they are to show a new thread or new post.....
