How do you treat a broken nail for a cat back paw?

BROKEN OR BLEEDING NAIL BROKEN NAIL If the nail is not bleeding and is causing the dog or cat pain because it is in the way then it needs to be removed. Only remove it yourself it is loose and you feel comfortable doing so. You may need to have someone help you hold your pet or muzzle your dog. Grasp the broken nail with a pair of pliers and tug. If it does not come away easily then seek veterinary help. BLEEDING NAIL This can happen if your dog or cat tears the nail or if you have trimmed the nail too short. * Restrain your pet and elevate the affected limb above the body if possible by rolling your pet onto its back. * Apply a clean cloth against the nail. Cotton wool can be used in this circumstance as the fine fibres aid clotting. * An alternative is to drag the affected nail over a bar of soap to clog the nail and then apply the cloth to the nail. * Apply pressure for at least 5 minutes. Nails tend to bleed for long periods of time. Do not remove the pad until bleeding stops. * Apply a bandage if the nail tends to start bleeding as soon as the pad is removed or your pet is licking the paw excessively. * If bleeding does not stop in 15 minutes transport to your veterinarian. Continued bleeding may indicate a bleeding disorder and your pet may be in serious trouble. * There are also commercial products you can buy - I know of one called Qwik Stop that will halt the blood flow quickly. Alternatively, you can use cornstarch which will work too.
