bent nail?

Postby Krw7454 » Thu Mar 14, 2019 6:52 am

recently I've noticed that my beardies nail is bent weird. I'm not sure if its just grown like that or if I need to clip it, it doesnt seem to be causing him any discomfort but I'm still worried he might cut the bottom of his foot on it :? [Click image to enlarge]

Sometimes they curve like that. It's not likely to cause an issue if it doesn't get too long. Having some relatively rough surfaces to walk on can help. As far as trimming goes, I just do that when the sharp tip of the nail gets too long and starts scratching. You don't want to cut above the sharp tip of the nail because it can be painful.
