pretty sure that would not be likely. Nail is pretty badly injured on the underside and that sort of damage will be painful for a while... but eventually grow out of it. We usually bandage these nails with an antiseptic ointment or powder to keep the exposed nail bed from getting infected. If nail is actually loose, we may cut it very short and/or even yank it off if loose enough... otherwise it's like a hangnail and painful constantly as the pet moves. But not much chance of this injury being life threatening.
