help with dog

My dog managed to crack half of her toenail off exposing whatever is under there. It's obviously causing her some pain so I put a bandaid around the exposed area, but she just ripped it off. What's standard procedure here?

Is it bleeding? I have heard that a dog can bleed to death if you cut their nails too short. I guess a blood vessel runs through the base of the nail. I'd call the vet.

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

It isn't bleeding, it's like exposed skin. She licks it every once and a while, though.

Suck the poison out! j/k

If that shit gets infected, your puppy could lose a paw. I know it sounds extreme, but dogs walk in all kinds of shit. Neosporin and some duct tape. Or go to the vet.

Go to petsmart and ask for the Stop bleed powder. They'll know what your talking about cause people cut the veing while trimming dogs nails constantly. After using that get some bandage wrap there. It's self adhesive and seems to not bother them as much so they don't always take it off. To be honest though something like this should really be looked at by a vet.

I used to work for a vet, I don't remember the details but those can get pretty nasty. If it were my dog I'd take his ass to the vet

bow wow wow yippee yo yippee yay

Hey I worked at a vet hospital for a little bit and all I can recommend is go to a vet. There are blood vessels in the nails of the dogs and it is sometimes when getting them clipped the nails are cut close so the vessels can bleed. It's a simple procedure just to ensure health (there are other details of course).
Still, what you're describing sounds like it can get infected. Infection is one of the worse things for pets. And though a dogs salivia can "heal" I still recommend a professional to check it out. As you typed, wouldn't hurt. Even if it's something minor it can go bad. Their paws contain their sweat glands and other things so go to a vet and make your pet proud. lol

TMO Good fortune!

I'd say as long as she's not carrying the leg (limping) or breeding profusely, I'd leave it alone for a couple of days and see what happens. just watch for excessive swelling. compared to people, dogs are pretty resistant to minor infection. they have to be, they eat shit afterall. my dog breaks nails off all the time. it makes for bloody carpeting, but thats about all.

No, that would be me that's breeding profusely.

If it isn't bleeding that good, but like others have said go to the vet asap. An infection in the nail can cause her to loose her whole leg. My sis is a vet so I get a lot of second hand knowledge from her.

+1 on vet if the break is really short, worst case i'd guess is the dog'll get antibiotics, some stuff to clean it, etc, and an elizabethan collar to keep her from licking it, dogs hate the things but they really stop them from opening wounds

dabbing the nail with flour will stop the bleeding if s/he licks it open again, old trick to speed the clot other than the nick stuff, i use it all the time if i trim their nails too short

another +1 to watch for infection if its managable w/o the doc

The dog's licking is probably doing more than enough to heal the open area.

Dog saliva is magical.

True story.

We're back from the vet, she's fine, they said it wasn't bad, but they bandaged it to be safe and she got all of the shots she should have gotten a while ago.
