Hey, just doublechecking on Chloe's paw. I presume it recovered, but for future reference would like to know what worked.

She's getting around alot better. Thanks for asking.
She still wants to bite on it. So I have to give a stern NO! And I get a pout out of her. Thats normal.
Thanks Folks

Hope she's starting to heal and that it's not as painful as it was at first! Kelly

Chloe the bichon did a similar thing last year. The vet trimmed off the broken part and put on antiseptic and bandage. Since she was with my dad, I don't remember how many days she was on half speed, but she did fully recover quite quickly.

I don't think you're crazy with the superglue. But I'd do the neosporin and wrap overnight, then examine it again tomorrow. Turns out the pup's response to chew away the bad part isn't too bad, but as humans we need to inspect and take to the vet as necessary.

I'll throw in my 2 cents worth...yes, wrap it up so that it can heal...and not be touched, licked, or whatever!

Good luck with all this!

Peace, Love, and everything Groovy!

Thanks All!
I am socking the foot for now. I didn't want you all to think I was NUTS on the Super Glue thing. Truly thats what my beautician used before on a nail broke half off. Of course what holds true for humans does not also hold the same for out dear Poodles.
Thanks so Much!

LadyCocoa,
DO NOT superglue the nail! Wrap it or the whole paw in gauze or a bandage with Neosporin on it and take her to your vet tomorrow. Strudel once caught her dew claw on something in my house and actually pulled the whole nail out of her paw. I never heard such a horrific cry and didn't know what had happened until I took her to the vet. She was treated and it was wrapped like above. They actually put a mini ace bandage over the place to keep her from taking it off. Eventually she grew a new dew claw. It's very painful and could get infected with the superglue.

Whenever I''m tempted to eat something I shouldn''t, I remember the following: "Don''t eat for the moment''s pleasure, for when that moment''s gone, the consequences will stay with you, from that moment on."

I socked Cole's paw so he couldn't chew it while putting meds on it to heal.

Hey Poodle Lovers!

I have a question for you.
Chloe hurt her paw today. I checked it out and saw that her toenail is split down the side. She was fine earlier so I know she had to have done it today (Labor day) as she was running around in a natural area we are cleaning out. So she must have caught it on something.
Is there anything I can do for her. She is limping and keeps biting at it. My concern is I know dogs bleed alot from their toenails if you cut them to short. Will this happen if it breaks off. She keeps biting at it.
Should I try super gluing it? I ask this because I tried it on my own when my own toenail broke half way off pretty far down. It worked.
Any advice folks.
Thanks lots!
LadyCocoa
