Hello. My Pomeranian broke his fingernail. I do not know when did it happen, I just seen him licking his paw and some blood on the carpet. I noticed that there is blood on his rear paw. I took a closer look and his fingernail is broken right at the beginning of the nail. Its still holding on there but its curved and has a crack. I cleaned it with a wet cotton and applied Kwik Stop (held a wet cotton with kwik powder on his paw and squeezed few drops on the nail.) Not sure what to do next, every vet nearby is closed. I wouldn't want to cut that nail myself. He is sleeping now.
Should I take him into his cage and leave it until tomorrow?

it happens, you did right to clean and helps for the kwik stop. Mine just go on with life and the nai heals up fine. You keep an eye on it to see that it's healing and no infection sets in and that there is no further injury to the paw in general.
