I'm sorry to hear that.

I would call your vet and ask him or her. No matter what anyone else says, you should check with your vet. Hope this helps!

The vet should know. Feet take awhile to heal.
Depends on the severeness of the cut.
And no one should removed these except the vet.

I agree with the other posters. Feet are a tender spot for dogs to hurt and a vet should be the only one to take them out. Call your vet and they will tell you when he needs them out. It can very how long it takes to heal. Hope he heals well.
