Hello agian dog needs advice

September 15th, 2008, 04:53 PM
Name is linda and I have 2 dogs and a cat. I've been here before, and got the support and advice I really needed. Thanks for that. My dog sonny has a nail that is giving him some trouble. no bleeding just looks like it might be split, he doesn't want it touched (of course) and looks like it might have bled at one time. Is there a ointment or home treatment that might work to give him some relief?

I would recommend soaking the foot & nail in some warm, salt water. That should provide some relief and help fend off any infection. If it appears inflamed then I would take him to the vet.

Good luck.
