  8. When my first Cardigan got quite old, he dragged one of his hind legs. He would have that exact same issue with the two middle toenails. They would bleed if we weren't careful. Ouch! However, he was not strong enough to wear a boot as it required lifting his leg even more not to trip. So what we did was individually wrap each toenail with a couple of layers of duct tape. I would trim back the fur around the nail. Cut tiny strips of duct tape the size of the exposed nail, and wrap it onto just the nail surface (not touching any fur). I would be sure to get the portion that was dragging well covered with a couple of layers. It would last a couple of days and then I would do it again. It worked like a charm and his nails grew back a bit so then it was even easier to wrap them in the tape.

  9. Salve 2x day and then put the boots back on.

    Booties work great for this, had a foster that was down in the rear and we used these to protect his little feets. Works great!

  12. Mom seems to think she has heard of something called nail caps (for cats maybe) but you might be able to do something like that

  14. Owie! My back feety-feet are like that - it's from digging in, then pulling real hard when we go on our walks. What can I say? I'm a Siberian Husky. Anyway, it was only a problem one time, when I pulled so hard I cut down to the quick and started bleeding. Mom freaked out and took me to the vet. Other than not pulling so hard (??? Where's the fun in that???) she said I should wear booties. That didn't go so well. You look WAY more tolerant than I could ever be!!! And you look quite stylish, too!
    Yours sincerely,

  16. Katie had that problem but with only her back left paw. The one claw got so short it would bleed. The asphalt and concrete are like dragging your claw over an emery board. We tried shoes, pawz, all kinds of stuff but it all wore out so fast. The only solution we tried that has worked and consistently is the chiropractor. It took a few treatments before it went away, but it is pretty much gone now. All the vets said there was nothing we could do, so we are thrilled it works for Katie.

  17. Shiver chews his nails sometimes. I don't have any suggestions, but the little red pawz things on Edward's feet seem like a good idea to keep any bacteria out of the too short nails.

  18. Poor baby. I don't know what to suggest other than booties.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Poor baby! Maybe wrapping each nail with vet wrap or duct tape?

  20. Yep, try out those toecaps. Our vet wanted Mom to try them for Phantom so he wouldn't slip so much, but he wouldn't let Mom play with his toes long enough to get them on.

    www.softpaws.com They are meant to stop the floors from being scratched or to help dogs from slipping, but we wonder if they might also help protect your nails.

  21. Ouch! That looks yukcy! My nails are always too long and so my person takes the silly dremmel thing to them. I never thought before that too short would also be bad!

  22. Ouchies! Everyone else here seems to have better suggestions than we do. We've never had that problem. I hope one of these works for you so you have no more ouchies!

  23. Check these out. https://www.toegrips.com They should be easier to get and off than tape, especially if you are a squirmy dog. As you heal, you may want to avoid hard surfaces for your walks for a while and stick to grass. Might be hard. Tallulah and Petunia prefer to walk on sidewalks when we walk.
    We used these with Isabelle. http://www.dogquality.com/products/grippers They were more to help Isabelle on slippery surfaces, but they would keep your nails from touching the concrete directly. They will also last longer than the Pawz, especially on rough surfaces. They still have room in the paw area like the Pawz but have a little bit of a structure. Kind of like a footie pajama. A lot less structure than a bootie or a shoe which may work better for you.
    If your nail is bleeding, we can't recommend EMT gel enough. http://www.amazon.com/Trophy-Colagen-Wound-Dressing-1-Ounce/dp/B0002B8CPC
    This stuff works like liquid bandage in that it creates a barrier over the wound. Except it doesn't sting or stink like liquid bandage does (the human kind). It works on nails and skin wounds. You just want to make sure the wound is clean before you apply it. And give it a little time to dry. It's fantastic because you don't need to put a bandage over it unless you have a serial licker. If you do get it, it can dry out. We keep the tube in a baggie.

  29. If you do get the EMT gel, here's a tip. It has the consistency of honey. Like honey, it gets oozier as it gets warmer and less oozy as it gets cooler. If you squish the tube and it feels super squishy, maybe cool it off a little. If it's more liquid-y, you'll need to apply in a thinner layer or it will take longer to dry. It will come out faster as a liquid so be cautious as you apply pressure to the tube.
    If you are going to put anything over the gel, bandage or the Pawz or a sock or anything, make sure you let it dry completely. It will stick to whatever touches it. If you put a bandage over it before it dries, you'll pull the gel off (like a scab) when you change the bandage. If that happens on accident, wet the bandage. EMT does come off when it gets wet.
    Good luck!
