Dogs split nail

My dog has split his nail now the middle, it isnt bleeding however it looks sore and he flinches when i touch it.  Will the nail eventually drop off and heal itself?  I am going to clean the nail everyday, will this be sufficient?

A dog's nail has nerves throughout the entire upper section, and any damage can be very painful.  It is possible for an infection to occur as well.  I would recommend having your Vet take a look at the area to see if any type of medications, dressing, ointments,  or antibiotic treatment may be necessary to aid in healing and help eliminate the pain.  I Hope This Helps Brenda
