bradl Posted February 22, 2016 Share Posted February 22, 2016 A useful blog post with excellent images of the approaching quick of a dog's nails: The Secret Grey Dot Inside A Dog’s Black Nail. Quote So instead of searching the internet looking for my answer I called up one of my veterinarian friends and asked her. Much to my delight she reassured me that it was not a figment of my imagination and my dogs were not special. Black dog nails DO in fact have a grey dot when you are at the beginning of the quick. And then she asked me if I had blocked out the 8 years that I was a vet tech where a good percentage of my time was spent trimming nails. Please forgive the post title. I know many people dread nail grooming (myself included) and I couldn't resist allusion to the quick and the dead. 5 Quote CAIRNTALK: Vote! | Questions?
