    DefaultRipped dew claw

    KC somehow ripped her Dew Claw last week, after licking it all weekend I took her to the vet who ripped the outer casing of the claw off (it was hanging there) but she's still licking the inner nail that's left. Has anyone ever had this problem before?
    Kind regards<br />Jo

    You need to keep her from licking the wound, otherwise it won't heal. You may need to bandage it, or get a foul tasting antibiotic cream from the vet, or use a plastic e-collar to keep her from licking it.
