I’ve never had a dog of mine injure their dew claw until Oreo did last week. When Chris saw it, it was bent sideways and sticking out. The nail was not bleeding, so Chris went to work. He’s not the nurse of the family… When I got ready to look at it. Sometime during the day, Oreo had ripped it off. I could see the pink, pulsating quick in there, thankfully holding back the blood. I trimmed the hair away from the nail so I could see what I was doing! The nail had cracked not too far down, just above the quick. It looks like a clean break. I gave a shout out to Easy’s Staff, because the big lug has gotten his claws in snag once or twice before. His staff told me to use Vetericyn. I looked for it at my nearby pet heath food store and she told me this was comparable.
I’ve been spraying it on Oreo’s nail for the past few days and it has healed up so well! Easy’s staff told me this stuff is great for hoomans also! I had a hangnail, it didn’t sting spraying it on and it has also taken a big swing in healing. It doesn’t kill the good cells only the bad.
Why have I suffered with the sting of peroxide or the gooiness of antibiotic ointment? This stuff is awesome!
