Ugh... stupid nails

Food, Fitness and how to keep them healthy.

Heading to the Dog Sports Open tomorrow (100 yards past exit 47!!) and Mr. Riggs managed to quick three toenails this afternoon. Now he's limping. Lovely.

I'm not even going to let him walk on my driveway tomorrow.

He'll have half a day in the car so hopefully they won't hurt him by Friday.

How did he do that? I've never had a dog quick himself before.

Shorty does that all the time -- her nails are very soft. I put that liquid bandage stuff on the ends of her nails if they're really sore. I think it's called Nu-Skin?

Poor Riggs! What a delicate little flower he is! :wink:

Weird! Is it just when she's been on concrete/rough surfaces? Or is it whenever?

I would probably buy a styptic pen, which is basically styptic powder in stick form, and keep it with me if my dogs did that.

Purple does it all the time in the summer from running around the pool. The instant no-limp cure is an antibiotic salve with pain reliever. We have a generic brand in the dog cupboard.

eviendly the cure was sleeping in my air conditioned bed room last night. He's fine today. His downstairs crate looks like the Texas Chainsaw Massacre though.

He did it chasing his reward on the neighbor's driveway. I have this big red Kong ball that he loves and I'd toss it and then release him. That little bugger can move when he wants to! He ran into the garage a few times though :rolleyes2:

He did two nails on one back foot and one on the other. He did the same thing the last two times I brought him to the tennis courts as well; but he had never limped before.

He's fine now though!

Purple usually recovers overnight, too.
