Max is licking at his left hind foot like it's bothering him. I looked at it tonight, thinking there was a burr in the hair buried down next to the toe crease, instead I noticed the nail looked funny. Max has black nails and I noticed the second toenail from the outside seems to be fading to a more transparent reddish brown color with lighter stripe on the top ridge of the nail instead of being opaque black. All the other nails seem normal, he's not limping and it doesn't seem to be affecting the toe. Other than licking it, do you think I need to be worried or can I wait until his next nail trim to have the vet eyeball it? He'll probably go back in for a trim right after Valentines Day.
