    DefaultTorn toenail and skin

    Does anyone have any suggestions on healing the skin on a badly torn toe? I took her to the vet and she was put on an antibiotic and a daily cleaning solution. Tried two collars to get her to leave it alone but she managed to still get to it and just chewed away. Finally got a cone collar the size you would use for a Great Dane and so far she has not gotten to it. Today I took the collar off for less than two minutes and in that time she quickly got to it again and tore the scab off. I know I will just have to always have the collar on but any thoughts for helping it to heal would be appreciated.

    I just had this problem. My vet cauterized the torn nail and put Munchie on antibiotics.

    The toenail is gone and the problem is the skin on the toe. She keeps ripping it open.
