Tips for a Stress-free Clipping Dog Nails:
- Use only “scissor” type clippers and with safety stop guide.
- Use small size clippers for better controls. Only giant breed dogs will need large clipper.
- Practice handle your dog’s paws often to get him used to the handling.
- Never put the whole nail in the clipper. Trim small bit at a time.
- If there are hair around the paws, trim the hair around the nails first.
- Clip nails outside or in a well lit room.
In case of accidentally cut the quick and it’s bleed, use corn starch to staunch the bleeding. And, give a treat right away. For completely safe and easy trimming, use our Painless Dog Nail Trimmer.
Why do you need to clip your dog nail regularly?
Dog with long toenails can be painful. When the dog’s toenails contact hard ground, like your kitchen floor, the hard surface pushes the nail back up into the nail bed and puts pressure on all the toe joints. It may even forces the toe to twist to the side. Your dog toes will become very sore or even arthritic.
It’s recommended to clip your dog nails every 2 weeks for maintenance. For Most Effective Dog Nails Trimming, we recommend to use the Professional Dog Nail Clipper together with our Painless Dog Nail Trimmer.
