    DefaultWhat do you do for a broken dew claw?

    Willow was outside playing ball a bit ago and when I went to pick up the ball to throw it, I noticed blood on it. I looked down and saw that her dew claw had broken off and it is bleeding, but not a lot. The broken piece is barely hanging there. Do I clip it off or leave it alone?

    Yup-he told me to take some nail scissors and snip it off and to apply styptic powder if it kept bleeding. After looking closely it wasnt broken all the way off, so it just looked worse than it was.
