cleptogrey Posted March 6, 2016 Share Posted March 6, 2016 this is bizarre, but what's even more bizarre is that i found the nail. felix was playing in the front yard today, a nice brisk day in the low 30s, so the ground is pretty hard. i was busy kicking the jolly ball in-between cleaning up poop. i called the dogs in so we could go thru the house to the back yard. they followed, felix with jolly ball in mouth. the next thing i know there's pools of blood in the house. dh quick grabs felix so i can inspect and his rear paw is gushing. i send dh for the muzzle and paper towels, both wet and dry. i then run down to grab the medical kit and look. he's missing his outer rear nail!!! no pain as i apply pressure to the paw. then i applied quick stop, bleeding subsided( o.k. good he doesn't have a bleeding disorder!!). i neglected to clean it well(just wiped it w/ a wet towel)since i didn't want to disturb the clot and bandaged it up. his nail beds look fine, i do trim them every other week, trim and dremel, but those outer nails just never have any pressure(until today) on them. i don't link SLO since everything looks pretty healthy otherwise. The bottoms of his nails can get ratty looking but even at 9 he has crazy starts and stops going for his balls. monday i'll inspect, i'll give the quick a good time to heal. what do you guys think?? quirky? bizarre? or am i missing something?? remember this is FELIX, he's always getting into something bizarre.
