Happened around an hour ago and she keeps putting her foot up, it probably hurts a lot and her vet isnt answering the calls, should I be very concerned? I'm so scared. Please help.

Is it bleeding currently? I'd call around to other vets since if she hits it just right and it does fully rip then it would most likely have to be cut and cauterized to prevent farther issues.

Happy to report that Mint is fine, the nail fell off at the vet when trying to cut it and no blood vessels were damaged. She's doing fine and reasting peacefuly after a small dose of painkillers. Oof... what a scare. Thanks for the concern, friend. <3
