Hello. My Golden broke his fingernail. I do not know when did it happen, I just seen him licking his paw and some blood on the carpet. I noticed that there is blood on his rear paw. I took a closer look and his fingernail is broken right at the beginning of the nail. Its still holding on there but its curved and has a crack. I cleaned it with a wet cotton and applied Kwik Stop (held a wet cotton with kwik powder on his paw and squeezed few drops on the nail.) Not sure what to do next, every vet nearby is closed. I wouldn't want to cut that nail myself. He is sleeping now.

Should I take him into his cage and leave it until tomorrow? User Profile

My dog ripped her due claw half off on a hedgehog spike at xmas. Her whole nail filled up with blood & she screamed if I touched it. I bandaged it & took her to the vet the next morning. Luckily they were able to see me on a sunday. I agree dont try to cut it off yourself. My vet did it & gave her a course of antibiotics & anti- inflammatory.
