Trimming Your Dog’s Nails
Perhaps no other home grooming activity is dreaded more by both owner and pet than cutting a dog’s nails. The task seems simple enough, particularly with the wide array of nail clippers now available, but the procedure can go terribly wrong with one misplaced snip, leaving a dog skittish and reluctant to ever allow you near his feet again. If you mistakenly cut into the quick – or vein and nerve that runs into every nail – a bloody mess could happen that damages carpets, furniture and, most importantly, your dog’s much-needed trust in your home grooming capabilities.
Don’t fret. Even experienced and cautious home groomers have accidentally cut the quick and faced dog nail bleeding. It’s easy to mistakenly cut a dog’s nails too short, particularly if the nails are black or dark in color. Dogs with white or light nails often have a visible quick, making it quite obvious where to avoid clipping. It’s not so simple when you can’t see it.
When you hear your dog’s nail click-clacking as he walks across the floor or hard surface, it’s usually a sure sign that he’s ready to have them clipped. The general rule of thumb is to clip where the nail makes a defined curve down towards the floor. Don’t cut too far beyond that or you could snip the quick. Keep in mind that the longer you allow the nails to grow, the longer the quick may grow, as well.
