Trimming Your Pups Nails

by romagroomer


Most dog owners prefer not to take a chance when it comes to nail trimming which is 100% understandable. Trimming your dog’s nails can be tricky, especially if your pet has black nails. The inside of a dog’s nail houses a nerve and the nerves are different lengths depending on the dog. An inexperienced executor could accidentally cut the nerve, and the nail will bleed when it happens. If the nail begins to bleed and the nerve has been severed, the dog will feel pain and will fear having his or her nails trimmed. Most dog’s nails should be clipped every four weeks. If you are unclear, unsure, or have never clipped your dog’s nails, be safe and allow your professional groomer or your vet to cut your pet’s nails! If you choose to trim your dog’s nails yourself, remember to always use a clean, sharp nail trimmer. Also, trim the nail at a 45 degree angle and cut slowly. Watch your dog for any signs of pain or bleeding and if you notice any, stop immediately as you are too close to the nerve. Always keep quick stop near to stop any bleeding in case of a mishap.
