what to do for a split nail

My puppy has split one of her front nails. It looks like she had one nail growing on top of the other. We did clip the top part of the split nail off as much as we could. She is showing no signs of pain, there is no swelling, no redness, I don't see any signs of infection. She still runs around like nothing is wrong with her. What do u I recommend to do. We also clip her nails every weeks or when needed.

Just let it grow out. Keep clipping the split part as it grows until it is gone, this happens to mine occassionally and it is no big deal. Sounds like you are doing everything you should be.
