Common Conditions

trimmed nail too close

September 22, 2016, 10:17 PM
Q: Gave my tea cup Maltese puppy a bath and trimmed her nails with a pup trimmer. Looks like I cut a little too close on one nail and it bled a little. I cleaned the cut nail and compressed against it, she didn't yelp out or cry, she just walked away. Should I out something on the nail, bandage it up, look out for what if it happens to get infected?
A: If it's not still bleeding just leave it alone. You can use a little corn starch or a stupid pencil if it's still seeping.
