Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today.

I'm glad that you asked because Norco contains Acetaminophen which is toxic to dogs. Please do NOT give Samson a dose of Norco.

If you can tell me more about why Samson's toenails are bad, I may be able to help more.
