My lurcher smashed the last 3rd of her nail off tonight, not sure how, just noticed her limping on the way home after a walk.

She was limping because it was bent back on a sliver and hinging as she walked.

I've tidied it up with clippers, the toe is OK but the nail seems a bit sore and I can see the quick. I feel as if I should seal it against dirt, maybe with a blob of nail varnish, any thoughts?

Its a bad night for lamping with the frost local here, I ran my dog 2 weeks ago in similar conditions like a fool and smashed a rear toe in fragments ;) , should of known better, will not make the same mistake again....

Frost here last night, but I wasn't working her, just exercising.

Had another look this morning, the toe's fine, she's walking normal, the nail just looks like it's been cut a bit short now, after my effort with the clippers.

I think her front nails have started getting a bit long recently, R Lass has had to change the morning route, so she's getting a bit less road walking now.
