I have a 7 year old male corgi, and this is the 3 toe nail

Customer Question

I have a 7 year old male corgi, and this is the 3 toe nail he is losing in 2 mos. I feed him Fromm Foods so I don't believe it is his dog food nutrition.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

Are these signs only involving the dew claws?

Are these nails falling off on their own? Or is he catching them (the most common reason) and damaging them?

Do his nails look flaky, crusty, or have brown discharge on them or at the base?
