Re: Claw from dogs,

What works pretty good, is to place the nail into a weigh boat and
completely submerge it in Nair, the hair removal product you can usually get
in any pharmaceutical section of any store. You should cover the weigh boat
in plastic  so the Nair doesn't dry out as fast. It takes a few days, but
keep iit in the Nair until the toenail becomes pretty pliable, then process
as usual.  The Nair helps to break down the keratin.
