Chewy's nails seem to split frequently and look funny when growing back. They don't seem to bleed when this happens, or cause him any discomfort. Anyone have any thoughts on what may be causing it? His nails don't seem fragile when trimming....they are pretty hard.

Maybe try to Dremel them instead of clipping them to see if that helps.

I'm wondering if it could be caused from a vitamin or mineral deficiency. I have no experience with this!
