My dog Gunner was running in the yard when he ran into oneof my sons toys . He came to a stop and I could see he was hurt. He broke his outer nail on his front left paw. He broke it all the way to his pad but its hanging. There was bleeding. I put a bandage on it and then covered it with one of my sons socks. What should I do now?

I would get him to the vet as soon as you could. He made need to have the nail removed or they may be able to glue it till it heals.
