My name is***** and I am sorry to hear that your dog ripped his nail off.
You have done the right treatments so far to protect the nailbed from infection and stop the bleeding.
Some dogs do grow their nails back, but it is hard to say if the quick is gone also. Some dogs will grow "crooked nails" where the nails grow in strange directions and need regular trimming. Others the nail never grows back.
I would continue to soak the paw once daily in warm Epsom salts water, pat dry, apply antibiotic powder or cream and rebandage. Do this once daily to check for healing and monitor for infection.
If your pup develops fever, stops eating, the paw or leg becomes hot to the touch, he will need to see your vet for oral antibiotics.
Does this help? What other questions do you have?
I would soak it for a few days, but don't scrub or rub it. It won't bleed again if you do not disturb the clot.
