Nail is split up the quick and is protruding .does the nail need be removed
?please help my pup!

Report as

Once the nail is split up, the best and safe thing to do is to have it trimmed off. This will depend on how far the nail has split. The reason for this is to prevent any further problems as it splits all the way to the skin.

The vet may find a way of clipping and trimming off the parts to prevent it from causing pain. However, if it is too deep, then it may have to be pulled off.

If your talking about a "pup" as in dog, yes the Vet will have to remove it. If it's your nail, go to a Dr and they can remove it... It will grow back...
