Nail trimming is something that people overlook, but it’s certainly an issue that should never be forgotten! These dog nail clippers make it easy to cut dog’s claws down to size at home. Trimming your pet’s nails is an important part of a regular grooming routine. If your pet’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. Worse still is the discomfort that comes with an accidental scratch from your favorite buddy!
The first consequence of long toenails is painful feet. When a dog’s toenails contact hard ground, like a sidewalk or your kitchen floor, the hard surface pushes the nail back up into the nail bed. This either puts pressure on all the toe joints or forces the toe to twist to the side.
All animals rely on information from nerves in their feet to move through the world and process gravity accurately. Make nail trimming quality time you spend with your dog. Lots of kisses, lots of treats and a positive attitude go a long way.
