    Defaulttorn dew claw nail

    One of my dogs has torn the nail on her dew claw. Half of the nail is still there. I stopped the bleeding and washed it thourghly. Then put antibiotic cream on it and have kept it banadaged. I have never had this happen before. Does anyone know if the remaining nail will grow.

    Most all torn/broken nails will grow back. I have seen a few that didn't, but that is the exception to the rule. If any of the broken nail is still hanging on, I would suggest cutting it off. Keep it clean, and if your kiddo is an angel that will leave a bandage on, then a bandage sure won't hurt anything.
