Sophie always seems to have pools of blood in most of her nails. This doesn't seem painful to her and I cut both dog's nails myself twice a month. When we got her, she had a couple of bloody nails but the vet said it could be from running so much. (She was a stray at the kennel.) She runs a lot still, in our backyard... Other dog's nails are fine. We have them both eating Blue Buffalo Freedom.

I told my b/f I thought it was yeast and we mentioned that to the vet as well but he wasn't worried about it. Jersey's is still there, but seems to be going away rather than getting worse and Ripley just has it on a couple nails.
That just doesn't seem to be it. I am leaning toward more of a pigmentation type thing, or even just dried blood from excessive running and play. We're keeping an eye on it, but it doesn't seem to be causing any discomfort and she doesn't even notice it.
