Trimming Your Pets Nails

Kylie Tatti - Saturday, June 08, 2013

Pet Care Tips Start trimming early!

Most dogs do not like having their nails trimmed. Start trimming nails as a puppy so that they get used to the process. Some dogs will happily sit in your lap or on a table while you trim their nails but many require some type of restraint.

Dog nails are constantly growing, just like human nails. Some dogs wear down their nails naturally from walking on pavement, gravel or concrete. However, these days most dogs live indoors and don’t spend enough time on these surfaces to keep the nails short. If left to grow, some dog’s nails will curl under and actually start growing into the foot pads ouch!. This leads to painful sores and infections. Also long nails can make it difficult for dogs to walk. Lastly, long nails can easily get caught on something and become partially torn off or split. This is very painful for your dog, and treating a torn nail may require sedation at your local vet.

I have attached a great video below that explains in detail how best to trim your pets nails.

If you still are not confident or your dog will not stand still long enough, you can call in any time with your dog to our store. We can do nail trims on the spot and at a very reasonable price.

Happy Trimming !
