Dog Nail Problems?

Answer

Dog nail problems not only affect the nail but the nail bed and surrounding area as well. Symptoms that a dog may have nail problems include difficulty walking, swelling or redness around the nail, abnormal nail color, and licking at the paws. Causes for dog nail problems include infection, bacteria, immune system disease, and cancer. Cutting nails too close to the nail bed can also cause nail problems. A veterinarian will need to take a skin sample to see what the cause of the nail problem is.
