If, on the other hand, the puncture extends into the navicular bursa, the radical operation is perhaps indicated, though not until one is sure that infection of the bursa and serious consequences are to follow if this operation is not performed.  Detailed description of the technic of this operation belongs to the realm of surgery and a good discussion of it is to be found in William’s work on veterinary surgical and obstetrical operations.

One may summarize the discussion of treatment of nail puncture by saying that emergency care as herein described is of first consideration.  In every case an immunizing dose of anti-tetanic serum should be given.  Subsequently, the method employed must suit the character of the wound, existing facilities for handling the subject and the skill and aptitude of the practitioner.
