|Freestep||I still quick nails from time to time, and once the bleeding stops, the dog acts like nothing ever happened. I've never even heard of a dog getting an infection from a quicked toenail.|

|sehrgutcsg||You are not alone my friend. I did it once and take the dog in from now on, I don't want the guilt on me, I felt terrible..|

|Athena'sMom||I did the same thing to my girl yesterday and she went out and played fetch like nothing ever happened. I think it makes us feel worse than our pooch!!|

I trim nails professionally and still get one once in a blue moon. I've never seen the dirt/outside infect anything. Keep in mind you can quick them with the dremel as well.
If I quick one of my dogs by chance I send them straight outside and throw a ball. The pressure of them running stops the bleeding for sure.

Been there, cut that quick. I recommend a styptic pencil to stop any bleeding. Works like a charm on me and my dog but I do have separate pencils for human and canine use since a little blood may be left behind on the pencil.
As for walking I would start with a short one and monitor for any discomfort. Check the pups foot after a short walk and if ok then it's probably fine.

|Soundguy||I've done it a couple of times over the years. It's never led to anything but guilt. Now I ere on the side of longer nails.|

|Blanketback||I think you're fine too. I know it sucks to do it, but my dogs still run around afterwards like nothing happened.|

|Bequavious||It's ok I think that happens to most people at least once. I packed mine with talcum powder and she was fine, though I made sure to barely cut off any on the next session and use lots of kibble because I was really worried about her becoming a pain to trim. As for walking, I'd just give it a go. If she seems to be feeling any pain you can always go home, but my girl was fine once she stopped bleeding.|
