Cutting Claws

Dog Claws: The Proper Way to Clipping

By: O Jefferson

Nail trimming is an important part of a regular grooming routine. If your dog’s nails get too long, they can break, which is painful and sometimes results in infection. Long nails can also cause an irregular gait that leads to skeletal damage. Despite its importance, many people can’t or don’t like to trim their dog’s nails. It’s a task that can make both people and dogs anxious. How do you know exactly where to cut the nail? What if you trim the nail too close and cut the sensitive quick? What if your dog seems worried? Although it can seem daunting, if you keep a few guidelines in mind and maintain a consistent schedule, nail trimming doesn’t have to become a stressful chore. Below is a short diagram of how to clip your dog's nails yourself. And if you're uncomfortable doing it yourself, your local groomer or vet can do it for you for a very small fee if nothing at all. ♥
