My dog tore her front dew claw. It did not bleed much, but she is licking
and I can tell she is in pain. It looks like I can see exposed skin above the claw, This happened yesterday morning/
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Gigi 5 years. I sprayed it with Lacerum wound cleanser and put a sock on her foot and taped it in place. We just now had a chance to tal
JA: Is Gigi bleeding
Customer: We just now got a chance to take the sock off and look at it. It is raw
but not bleeding. It looks like the nail
is pulled off and I can see what I believe to be flesh. I'm sure you must have see this injury. I dont know what to do at this point..She doesn't seem to be in pain unless you touch it. So with it looking like I see flesh exposed above the nail what is the best course of action. Try and clip the nail or just keep it clean and wrapped with a sock for a few days. Right now the sock is off and she just keeps licking it. Could that also be a way to let her take care of it. Of course a sock would still be put on when she goes outside to keep it clean and safe. She is a collie
hound mix and runs around outside like a race house.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the veterinarian should know about Gigi? The veterinarian will know what to do about this bleeding. I'll connect you ASAP.
Customer: It is not bleeding. It just looks like flesh is exposed above the nail. So my question is the sane as above. Cut it, clean and put a sock on, or just leave it alone
