    Make sure that there isn't a ring of ujnshed skin encircling the toe.
    This will cut off circulation and the toe will die.

    if there is shed stuck on his toe soak it with a warm wet clean q-tip If you got the shed off and its red now just keep an eye on itto make sure it doesnt get infected. You may want to add a bit of polysporn to it (the ointment, not the cream)
