I have a welsh corgi who is two years old. Her nails have always been white but one has turned dark brown almost black. And a couple more of them have brown streaks going down the top of them. My other corgi's nails are just fine. Is this something I should be concerned about? I just gave her the last of two doses of worm pills from the vet about a week ago but this streaking started over a month ago.

It's nothing to concerned about. Some dogs nails do this. I have an Australian Shepherd who has clear and black nails. Normally dark dogs have dark nails and light dogs have light nails, but it can vary and light dogs can get streaks in their nails or have some that turn dark. As long as nothing starts to happen after, she'll be perfectly fine.
