Tango has had 3 nails break off! They crack and break off! I have had to take him to the vet twice now for it because i couldn't clip them.

The first time they didn't bleed cause just the cover part cracked and broke off but they were still sore. So i had the very clip them for me as short as they could. Then 2 weeks later he broke another one, but this time it bled and was in the quick! My brother who is 6'3, 240 lbs had to lay on him so i could wrap it. I took him to the vet the next day and it took me plus 2 vet assistants to hold him down while the vet clipped it.

They don't know what could be causing this. They said maybe the weather. But all his nails are very brittle. One even cracked and then grew back together under neith so the quick shows on top!

Is this a Rottie thing? Weather? Genetic? My other dog is fine, but also a different breed.

Ohh Also i have him on Glucosomine (sp) to strengthen bones and joints.. the vet said it should strengthen his nails too.
