Nova has a split nail, imagine cutting a hotdog longways. She is somewhat othered by it, and I?m not sure what to do. I did call my vet and he told me to ?just cut it off above the split? which sounds awfully painful, I?d be cutting a lot of quick. Any advice?

She more than likely needs to be sedated and have it trimmed back. That's what we had had to do when my dog ripped her nails.

I agree, if it's bothering her and split to the quick see a vet. A similar thing happened to my dog (the nail was split from the base to tip) and it got infected, so you might want to watch for any changes that indicate infection.
