    Just got back from the vet. Looks like the dog's toe nail is broken and has to be cut at the base. They have to put her under anesthesia for the procedure. Anyone ever go through this with your dog before? Just wondering what to expect. Will the nail grow back?

    Nail will grow back, slowly, and sometimes will grow crooked or funny.Use to see 'em all the time at the clinic I worked at.Try and keep your dogs nails trimmed and you should have no problems in the future.You can try and use a dremal tool w/ a round sander attachment, works great!Lots of new stuff out there too.Good luck and stop trying to train your dog to climb trees!!!

    Yes, I had a dog split a nail while hunting. It was very painful and lots of bleeding. The vet cut it off at the base sealed it with a crazy glue type glue and it did grow back. Here's hoping for a quick recovery. Nail injuries are usually painful for dogs.

    Thanks swampfrog I feel better already.

    Thanks for the well wishes JSD The vet advised that anesthesia is the best way to go because the nail removal will be very painful. I would prefer no anesthesia, but if the dog will be more comfortable then I guess the anesthesia is best.

    I just bought the "peticure". Its a dremal tool type trimmer. Works really well and the dog doesnt mind it as much as the clippers. peticure.com is the websight I got it from. Hope your girl is better!

    It happens a lot to one of my Brittanys. He would tear them on my deck when I would let him out when he saw a chipmunk or squirrel and chased them. They always grew back but the anesthesia always knocked him down for a day.

    Hope for speedy recovery Jon. I have to attend to my animal now as well and been putting off for a couple days. She spiked me last night so that reminded me. A couple times I seen her nails split and put crazy glue on them to protect till I could cut away myself.

    My dog got his toenail stuck in the hardwood floor molding where it meets the carpet (as he was running for the front door"bell".) sheared the toenail off and the quick was fully exposed (however not cut or bleeding). It was winter and very cold. We were careful with him but it didn't bother him at all. In about a month you could never tell anything happened.
