toe nail

6 posts in this topic

Last nite my lab must have gotten her nail caught on something and rippped it half off. Im pretty sure that she ripped out the whole thing bc i can see the back end of the nail on one side. Now its just hanging half on and crooked. I was wondering if anyone had some advice on what to do. It hasnt really blead much since last nite but then it was comin out like a stuck pig. I dont think it bothers her to much- she walks fine and plays but it looks very painful to me. Do i try and rip the rest off or do just let it be.

Clip the part that's hanging off with a nail clipper, and buy some syptic powder to stop the bleeding (if it starts again). Both should be available at any pet store.

Its the whole nail tho. She didnt rip just a piece off or break a part off it, she pulled the whole nail out and one side is still connected to her toe. If i did pull the whole nail out would it grow back.

My lab did the same thing this summer chasing a rabbit. I took him to the vet and they clipped the nail. It was only like 50 bucks. They also wrapped it in cling wrap that he would not chew on, it worked very well.

There was just a piece on the Pheasants Forever program. The guy said to get some stuff the dentists use for repairing a cavity. They took a half of a pill capsule and put that stuff in it and then put it over the broken claw. Supposedly it sets in 20 seconds and then you're good to go. They didn't mention taking off the capsule but I guess it would come of pretty quickly. My dog broke a claw and there was some pulp haning off the end. Cost me a hun to have the vet clean it up and give me some antibiotics. I would be concerned about infection or renewed bleeding without repairing it. That would ruin an hunt pretty quickly.

I ended up goin to the vet to have them pull off the nail. They had to sedate her to do it. Then they put a little cast like thing on her, that say 'Go Vikes', that she needed to wear for 3 days. They tried to tell me that she cant go out for opener this weekend but well have to see about that. It all costed me a lil over a hundred.

    • We actually just watched the first season of this show on Netflix finally. We loved it! We binge watched it and it only took us a little over a week to watch the entire season. We actually just finished watching Breaking Bad this winter and this was the next show we started. Season 2 should be out on Netflix within the next month or so I should think?
    • A lot of great ideas , seems liquid smoke is a fav, lipton is a good thought too. Great looking burglars fellas, and that bacon wrapped meatloaf looks mouth watering thirdeye.  I went back through my pics looking for the open pit burgers but all I found were steaks, but holy moly I must eat burglars a lot Cuz there's a bunch. Think next time I'll mix it up and see if anyone notices, thanks gents and keep the pics coming!!
    •   I agree. I wasn't exactly counting down to the midseason premiere, either, but it was a good, solid episode. I also really liked the clothes line scene--best action sequence in quite some time. I was impressed with the start overall and it's nice to see some sense of urgency and not just Rick moping around licking wounds.   Last night was...okay. Nothing stood out as bad, but it wasn't mind-blowingly good either. I am still reserving judgment for how this season ends, but half two is off to a pretty good start. I just hope they don't go off on a side character episode and kill the momentum they have going...
    • I for got, we added wild rice too!!  and only hand harvested too, I think it makes a huge difference in taste.
    •   Think his staff just wanted a break ........
    • What is your prediction on how soon after ice out that people will be out on Mille Lacs.  I am guessing within a week.   
    • I just pulled the trigger and bought the Milwaukee 1/2 inch brushless fuel drill and the 6 inch K drill setup.  Tested it this past weekend.   Could not be happier. 23 holes and battery still had one bar left. This was in approximately 18-20 inches of good ice. 5.0 battery. 
    • the one mentioned here, they have gone up to $399.99 but they still had free shipping and no has them around here.  they were very pleasant to talk to and get info.
    • One big boy just left Elite and went back to Mathews. Elite is a good shooting bow. 
    •     I'm sure God approves. After all, he's not in charge down here anyway...
