Customer Question
Hi, my name is...

Hi, my name is ***** *****. we have a Walker Coonhound almost 2 years old. I know she isn't getting enough exercise as we both work. But lately she's been really chewing her nails, even when she's sitting with me and I'm patting her. Also her skin is very pink, all over, but now it seems to be worse around the nails.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

She's otherwise healthhy, hates for us to trim her nails, try's to snap at us. Today I noticed fresh blood around her nails
