I think my dog has somehow pulled the claw back from her

Customer Question

I think my dog has somehow pulled the claw back from her paw, she was walking in the house and I saw blood spots. It is stopped bleeding . Will this heal itself or should I go to the vet?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know what to do about this bleeding. I'll connect you ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about your dog?

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

Did she just crack the nail? Or does it look like she removed the whole nail?

Can you still see hard nail up at the base of the exposed nail bed?
