Broken Dewclaw
My bernese mountain dog has constantly been licking her paws and I saw that her dewclaw is bent in half and I is obviously bothering her a lot.  What should I do?

Can you cut it without hurting her more? If its too damaged the vet will have to pull it out-which is painful. But if you can cut it without cuting the quik, it should be fine, just watch for infection. My dog split his nail and I had to take him in because it got infected. They also gave him painkillers because it hurt. It eventually grew out. But dewclaws are a pain, they seem to constantly get caught up on things. You might want to think about getting them removed.
