thomas pocahontas, Virginia 11/14/2014 3:19:25 PM my dog had a thumb nail, I call it. its the nail that's on there leg. it had grown all the way around and into the other side, this is not good for the dog. I wanted to take her to the vet, my wife told me that we can do this. I was very scared to. well we did it. we first cut the nail right in the middle, now there were 2 sides hanging she did not yelp, but bleed a little bit. when it stopped we then pulled the nail out from the other side, she did not yelp. bleed a little and then quit. gave her a treat and she is very happy now.
