Tilly came in from the snow, and I went to wipe her paws off. I noticed a back nail bleeding badly - it had somehow snagged on something and split. Since I was at my brother’s house, I didn’t have that powder that comes with her nail clippers. She’s currently confined to the crate.
She doesn’t seem to be in any discomfort, other than general annoyance at being in the crate when everyone else is home and having a good time. A few vet websites suggest that a split nail is cause for removal. That seems drastic, but I’ll take her to the vet tomorrow when they open.
In the meantime, is there anyhing I might be able to do? Would something like liquid bandage work to stem the bleeding (which isn’t flowing or anything, it’s akin to an open cut)?
