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: I hate robots. Did I say?
Roman Groom: Yeah, and he's not too fond of you. What's wrong with robots?
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.
