Poor Yatzie has a split nail

Yesterday Yatzie was limping and screaming out loud when I touched her front paw - huuh, a split nail! Yatzie totally hates having her nails clipped so I sometimes wait for too long... When the nails grow long they can split if the dog runs into a stone or on hard surfaces. Yatzie had this a few times before, but then the split was short enough for me to just take care of it myself. This time the split was almost all the wat to the edge of the nail so I took her to the vet. She said let us wait for a few days, maybe the nail will fall off by itself. So we are waiting and I clean her paw in soda water. She now has less pain, partly due to pain killers. I leave her paw unwrapped, trusting my vet that this is the right thing to do.
