It does make sense, but I don't know what an infected nail would look like, cut like that.

Pull back the hair on all of the other nails and check if there are any other nails looking like they might split, just to make sure that this is an isolated issue, and not some more systemic condition that can affect the nails.

I do know that nail stuff is VERY PAINFUL. My old boy had torn his dew claw, they trimmed it up, but he had to go back to have it amputated. It was painful and an ordeal. I hope that your boy heals quickly, and that the antibiotics do the trick. I would be tempted to clean it out with something, but Im' not sure what.
