My male 4 year old Doberman pincher has the distal tip of his back paw nail exposed. Would collasate help heal the nail and would it be safe Thank you?
Pat, Collasate postoperative dressing is recommended by the manufacturer to help the healing process of general dermatologic wounds, declawing, and certain types of ulcers. The manufacturer doesn’t state any specifics regarding the use of broken nails. It appears to be safe to use but we recommend contacting your dog's veterinarian for further advice on how to appropriately take care of the nail. The exposure of the soft tissue (quick) may lead to infection. It is important to clean the area with a scent-free soap and to stop any bleeding with stypic powder or pencil. Wound dressing can help minimize the risk of infection as well. Thank you, VetRxDirectCommunity Answer
