I assume during a run today my dog cracked and broke one of his front dew claws. Since he doesn't put pressure on it when he walks one can't really notice it. I only noticed when I tried to wipe his paws down he started yelping.

Anything in particular that I need to do about this or will it just heal on its own? It might be cracked down to the pad.

It looked worse today so I called, then took him to the vet. After waiting 45 minutes to be seen for our appointment, the vet looked at it and said it should heal on its own. She gave us some antibiotics and anti-inflammatories.

hmm, never seen that happen. Glad the little guy is on the mend though.

It's healing nicely, but the day after it looked bad. It was cracked down the entire claw.
