Our dog had a bloody toenail after a walk last night. And we noticed today all our dog's toenails look a bit bloody close to paw. What could this be?
Normally, I would say it's one of two things: either your dog's nails were cut too short--beyond the quick. Or her nails are too long and she is catching and tearing them on carpeting, furniture, etc.
Sometimes a dog will have an irregular gait. This can be caused by toenails that are too long, a foot or pad problem or even a neurological problem.
It seems kind of mysterious that ALL her toenails are bloody. I would take her to the vet to be sure. Or you might like to try ask a veterinarian online service. Either way, I would encourage you to get a professional opinion on this one.
