Stubbins has been having a ton of nail issues recently!
1. She still has hard poop caked on her nails! We tried a shallow dish of warm water to dip her paws in, individual small cups of warm water to dip each paw into, and even damp towels. Nothing seems to work! The trouble is that I can't see the quick of her nails to cut them!
2. Her nails haven't been growing. Is there a reason for this? The last time I cut them was over a month ago, and but they are super short!
3. Stubbins has two sideways nails. They don't look injured, just sideways! Any ideas as to why this may be?
She has almost recovered from her health issues, but now we have a new issue entirely!
Any help is appreciated! Thank you! :)

Betsy has a few nails that are twisted sideways and are awkward to cut. They never used to be. I think it's something to do with her age as she is now over 4 years old. I guess just some piggies get curly sideways nails and others don't.
