I'm babysitting a friend's dogs this week, so of course something is going to go wrong. They don't keep up with the nails on their dogs, and one of them got broke all the way up past the quick. The base of the nail is still there, but there's about 1/8th inch of quick sticking out from the break. No bleeding, and she's keeping it clean.
Dr Google says to monitor for infection and keep it clean, all the vet is going to do it put an expensive bandage on it that she'll probably chew off anyways. It's not causing her pain, I know because she's about the damned biggest sissy you have ever seen, and she's not favoring it.
Y'all thing there's any reason for a vet trip at this point? Just keep an eye on it a few days?

If she damages the quick and it starts to bleed, you can use styptic powder to stop it. I carry a little bottle of it in my field bag and it works pretty good to dip a nail in when they get broke off. but seriously... dirt probably works just as good, just keep it clean.
