broken claw - big deal?

Recommended Posts

My 11 year old brit broke a claw off yesterday. Now there is a cone of pulpy material hanging out abpit 3/8 of an inch. Not bleeding any more. Should I cut the material off, let it go, or have the vet do it. The dog doesn't seem to be bothered by it but I am concerned about infection.

Thanks for any info.

I have a yellow lab that jump off some playground equipment and his claws got stuck in the floor of it he riped off one on one side and two on the other. We just tried to keep it clean and put some peroxide on it and they grew back fairly fast called the vet and that's what they were going to do.

Well it proved to be a costly lesson. The bleeding stopped fairly quickly but started again 2 days later. I was concerned about infection and blood loss and so I took him in for the repair. They had to sedate him and it ended up costing $200. Guess not clipping the claws properly can get to be a big expense.

I've learned that if you can get out of the vet for 200 bucks or less you got a deal my dog did the same thing for a day or so but we just kept it clean as possible and it healed up and is fine now. I've had so many vet bills with him, if its possible to not go to the vet the better.Hope your dogs doing better.

    • I shoot 2 steel all season long in an improved cyclinder choke . Satisfied with that. Have a buddy who shoots Black Cloud 3's with impressive results.
    • I stopped at Lowes yesterday and got restocked at 9.88 per 18.6 lb double pack. No limit indicated.  
    • I will have to find some more, cause we ate all of them! They were all connected on the bottom as they are supposed to be. I haven't seen a half-free or a Verpa yet this year and I have only seen a couple of Devil's urn's. The popple fuzz was covering everything this morning so they were a little difficult for me to see. Hopefully we get a shot of water with the lightning over night.
    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
