Understandably nail clipping can be a stressful if not frustrating time for dogs and dog owners. However keeping your dog's nails neat and tidy is essential for preventing potential breaks, tears, ingrown nails and soreness as well as other problems related to posture and back care.
If your dog is still a puppy, you have an added advantage as you can get him/her used to the feeling of having someone touching his/her toes from week one. On the other hand if your pet is older patience and persistence will be required. Before saying too much more, we never expect every pet owner to clip their pets' nails themselves. Sometimes it is just not worth the stress to you and your pet. Whenever required, a member of our healthcare team will be more than happy to trim your dog's nails for you. They can also demonstrate the most appropriate nail trimming technique for your dog if you are having any troubles and still want to give it a go.
