Dog limps from running excessively

Animal: Dog
Breed: Whippet

Pet Symptoms: Our whippet was running very quickly and came back limping a little. He lay down and put his leg in the air and we noticed that the nail appears bent outwards. There is no blood and the pad appears in the correct place.

Our Advice: I can not see very well if the nail is broken or not from the picture. If it is broken it will have to be removed. It is possible that the digit is fractured as well. I would advise you to contact your vet for appointment. They will palpate the digit and if they think is broken will advise xray. If the nail is broken it will have to be removed under sedation.
