My poor little miss Abby came inside last night around 10:30pm and I noticed her paw was bloody and she was leaving bloody tracks across the kitchen. I stopped her before she reached the carpet and got her to lay down so I could get a closer look but I couldn't quite tell what the problem was. I got a rag and wet it with warm water to wipe off her paw that's when I saw her toe nail had been ripped almost all the way off and it was just about to her nail bed I got the bleeding to stop and we opted to wait until today for a vet visit since it wasn't bothering her.
FFW to this morning, she wouldn't put weight on it and it was bleeding a tiny bit. My mom and I both worked today (I until 4 and she until 2), she refused to take Abby to the vet alone (why is beyond me) so we waited until I got off and took her in. They had to cut her nail off and dremmel part of it. She now basically has one nail missing and they had to put a pressure bandage on it because of the bleeding. She got antibiotics for 2 weeks and pain pills to last 7 days, at the whopping cost of $105!
Now she's laying downstairs on her bed looking as though she's been beat. My poor baby

Awww.... poor Abby. I hope her nail heals fast and grows back.
Poor Abby! That same thing happened to Hoshi when I still had her and the vet had to completely remove her nail. It grew back in time with no trouble at all. I hope the same for Abby.
Poor Abby, hope your nail grows back quickly. So much for having your nails done for Christmas.
By the way, how does Molly do with the Christmas tree? It just kills Boo, she wants to shark the ornaments
that are lower. All the good ones are up high. Not taking a chance on my Hallmark collection. She won't
leave the Grinch stuffed animal alone. She doesn't bother my snowmen but the Grinch catches her eye constantly.
I can't wait to see what she does with gifts. ;D
OUCH is an understatement! Poor Abby! I hope she heals quickly.
The Abby's aren't having a good week this week, are they?

Poor little girl she is milking it for all its worth hope she feels better soon
hope she feels better soon!
Sounds painful. Hope Abby feels better tomorrow.
Oh poor Abby. It doesn't sound as though the Abbies are having a good week. Maybe a new Ball-y will make her feel better. HB had something similar a few weeks ago. You might buy some liquid bandage to have on hand just in case.
Yikes! Poor girl ...so glad to hear that she's on the mend.
