Mr. Squeaky and his torn nail

Hi . It's DD Nickel and Mr. Squeaky.

Last Sunday, Squeaky tore one of his front nails off jumoing around.

We went to the vet . He is on antibiotics.

It's torn off down to just a little piece.

Has anyone experienced this?

I'd like to know about pain and length of time to grow back. The vet said 6 weeks.

This happened to Sybil, my 10 year old Pug about two months ago. I have no idea how she did it, just saw blood in the car and then noticed the nail was missing. It has now fully grown back and she is no worse for the experience (although I can't say the same for me - anytime I see blood and my Pugs, I freak. Thankfully, it doesn't happen often!)

Mr. Squeaky will be just fine. Also, don't worry if he licks it - it won't hurt.
