I took my African Grey for a routine wing and nail clipping and the Vet accidentally pulled the nail too hard and it started bleeding by the base or cuticle and now he wont use it. He just sits and holds it up. But it is not bleeding now the vet stopped it. Will his nail fall out now or will he get an infection?
You have to watch it. typically, it will be fine, and just has to grow out. The chances are, it still probably hurts,or at least a bit tender. I am sure it will be fine in a couple of days, but depending on how far it is broke, it could be tender for a while. Keep and eye on the nail bed, and foot. If see any swelling, drainage, or funny smell, have it looked at.
Dogs break there nails all the time, and most people don't even notice unless they are holding up the foot. If he gets the foot really dirty, then try cleaning it just bit. Otherwise I am sure he will be fine in time.
