Minus one toe nail

Roxy lost her back left 3rd digit nail. It all happened on Wednesday. I was looking out the window and saw her limping in the back yard. She came into the house and there were spots of blood on the floor. I went to lift her leg, she yelped and would not let me near the pad. I waited about one hour. The bleeding had stopped and she was beginning to put some weight on her leg however not full weight. I went again to check and she would not let me near the pad. I called the vet and the office said bring her right in. The vet put some lanicane on it and then saw that the nail had been partially ripped out. So Roxy went in the back and he removed the nail. I was tramatized. Roxy did not even know that the nail was gone. There was slight bleeding afterwards and Quick Stop helped with that. We kept Roxy on a leash till this morning so she would not get into any dirt outside. The vet called this morning to check up on her and said she should be good to go.

Poor Roxy. Glad she will be ok though. I know how scary that can be, nails bleed like they ripped the whole toe off. Did the vet just take off the remaining torn part?

OUCH!!! Poor girl! Glad she's on the mend. I'm sure it hurt like hell.

Any idea how it happened? I know of a dog who lost a nail to a snapping turtle. Crazy dogs.

I wish I knew how this happened. I am thinking she was running the only part of the chain link fence that is behind our very thick hedges and might have snagged her nail on a root. I really don't know. Yep it really did hurt her, as soon as the vet removed the nail she was all happy and running around again.

Poor Roxy. This happened to my Dax one winter. She must have turned or stopped hard on the frozen ground. I didn't noticed it right away until I saw blood on the ground and took her inside to see what happened. Ripped the nail right out. Took all afternoon to get it to stop bleeding and I ended up wrapping it for a few days to keep her away from it. Nail never came back.

Had a bitch break one off coming up deck stairs one time, one half remained. It bleed awful I was sure something was majorly wrong. Vet went in and removed the rest and that bleed awful too. Lots of antibiotics and keeping the area clean and wrapped. It healed quickly and grew back. Was kind of sideways when it did come back. Nova lost her toenail to a turtle once, pulled it clean out. Bleeding was more like cutting a nail too short. It grew back fine, vet just cleaned it out, checked for any broken bits.

I have had a couple of dogs rip a nail out in it's entirety (one doberman, one whippet). They handle it remarkably well. They have always grown back for me.

Same thing happened to my dog, Willow. She was playing chase with her brother and got a toe/nail caught in one of the central air grates in the floor. The nail was split in half like a partially peeled banana, exposing the majority of the quick.

Since this had happened to one of my dogs in the past and I had a good idea what to expect, I chose not to take her to the vet. I just cut away the damaged nail so it would not split further and cause issues with the nail-bed, and kept the injury clean and salved with an antibiotic.

This picture was taken 3 or 4 days after the original injury occurred.



It has since healed completely.

The Doctor: It's not the robots, it's the people. Dressing them up and giving them silly voices. You're reducing them.
Roman Groom: Yeah. Friend of mine, she made her domestic robot look like a dog.
The Doctor: Ah, well, dogs. That's different.
