My dog is a 2 1/2 year old pug. For the past month she has been breaking nails for no apparent reason. So far she has broken around 4. I took her to the vet each time and she has been on antibiotics. My vet ran blood work, thyroid and fungus tests and they all were fine. Another vet, a friend of the family, suggest maybe a fatty acid deficiency so now I am giving her fatty acid tablets plus antiobiotics once a day. She has been acting normal, but I know it has to hurt to lose the nails and she does lick them a lot after they break (a sign of pain). I also have been giving her baby asprin for the pain. Is there anything that the vets have missed? Do you have any ideas what this could be?
The only thing I can think of is a fungal infection. Sorry, vetcare
