When I woke up this morning I noticed little blood spots on the bed. I started looking the boys over and noticed that Skye has torn his toe nail loose next to the pad on his left hind paw. What should I do it isn't bleeding anymore but looks like it hurts. It is too high up to cut off? Any suggestions?

I really don't know but if it is below the quick, I would check with a vet before you cut it.  Others may have some experience and will be able to give you some ideas.

Try to see if you can wrap it, or even put a sock over it..Like Barb said, if it's really close to the quick or actually torn, it's best to let the vet take a look

Depends on the severity of the split - if bed, then go to Vet to get it taken care of.

If not all that bad, then IMO Clean it then trim it back as close to the quick as possible, then super glue it back into place.   Use neosporin or similiar and cover it with a sock and tape.   However if its bleeding best IMO to take to vet.
