if a dog has a couple of black nails and the others are lighter in color does that mean there is a health issue?
No... I have a beagle and she has different colored nails. The vet always says she's healthy. Just to be sure and safe though, you should take her to the vet to make sure everything is OK. Good luck
No, black nails on a dog are not a sign of health issues. It's just depends on pigmentation. Black dogs or dogs with dark coloring usually have black nails, if the dog is bi or tri colored they can have both dark and light nails, and white or light colored dogs usually have light nails.
The lighter the nail, the easier it is to trim or cut without nicking the vein that runs through the nail.
In some large breed dogs such as giant schnauzers and poodles, the black dogs can suffer from a type of cancer that starts in the nail bed of their black nails. But this isn't common and isn't something to be concerned about in normal circumstances.The Puppy Dog Place
Wouldn't worry about it. You have to be careful when you cut your dog's nails. It's tricky to cut the black nail without causing some bleeding, but have no fear. your dog won't bleed to death.
