I noticed yesterday that Beau has started licking his dew claw on his front right leg a lot. Well, today I got a good look at it and it seems to have ripped somehow and the nail bed is now exposed. Should I take him to the vet for this? Before I realized the nail bed was exposed I was just going to wrap it with an ace bandage and see what happened, but now I'm not sure that's the best thing to do. I'll try to attach a picture of the nail to the post.

My dog cracked a claw on a front paw, and one piece was sticking straight out from the claw when I saw it. I called my vet, and they told me to just clip the broken piece off and spray it with vetricin (which you can get at most feed stores). It healed quickly...
