Emmie just came home from the groomer and it seems she has a bit of a problem. Two of her nails had split since she was there last. This is the 1st time she's had this problem and we haven't changed anything so I'm open to suggestions on what to do to get her nails back in shape. Anyone else have this problem?

I didn't think of that Annie. We do have a new groomer. Maybe I'll have to check into that. Wishing you all a wonderful evening and sweet dreams!
Love to you all, Deb, Emmie, and Angel Kelsie

Never had that problem. You need to check them every day to see if there is any change leading to them starting to split.

Love Riley

We have never had this problem with Layla or our previous Westie Molly.  I looked it up on the internet and their suggestion is to go to your vet as this may be causing Emmie pain and they can treat it with antibiotics till the nail grows out.  As to how it happened, I wouldn't know who or what to blame.  However this gives rise to concerns in order to avoid it happening in the future.  Hope you can get to the bottom of this and perhaps let us know once you find out why this happens.

Good luck

Just got off the phone from talking to Emmie's vet. She wants us to try adding fish oil to her food and see if that takes care of the problem. Fingers crossed that does the trick!

Oh no that is so weird that they split. I use coconut oil just 4 drops and we have never had any problems with nails. Poor Emmie. Hope she does not get it caught in something.
Praying it grows back quick Deb.
Love,Yoka,Levi and Winter.
Xxxxxooooo
