So last night I let the dogs in and find my dogs paw was bleeding. I put the other dog up and started to find out what was going on. I see the nail and think ok this is going to be a quick fix. I started cleaning the area, got the cone of shame out and was going to fix her up. Then the bleeding kept getting worse, and the nail looked funny, like smaller than the rest.
That is because there was no nail, just the meat of the inside of the nail, the quick was fully exposed. I felt horrible, the cleaning process had to of made the pain pretty bad. So off to the E Vet and sure enough he confirmed, trimmed some hair, got it cleaned out the whole way, sent me on my way with some prescriptions and a hefty bill.
So anyone ever had this happen? If so how long was recovery? He said I cana remove the bandage after 2 days but to keep it covered as long as possible. There just seems to be no good way to keep her off of it.
