To Clip or Not to Clip: Should I Cut My Dog’s Nails? Paw-some Tips for Paws-itively Perfect Pedicures!

The simple  answer is “yes” but, while a relatively simple procedure (and a good form of bonding if carried out as part of your dogs health routine rather than being a game) you should read up on how to do it safely.

It is generally recommended to regularly trim your dog’s nails or claws. If your dog’s nails are too long, it can lead to various issues, including discomfort, difficulty walking, and potential injury when at play as say, doggy daycare. Long nails can also cause your dog’s toes to splay or twist, affecting their gait and overall paw health.

If you hear clicking sounds when your dog walks on hard surfaces or if you notice their nails touching the ground, it’s a sign that the nails are too long and need trimming. Regular nail maintenance is essential for your dog’s well-being.

If you are unsure about how to trim your dog’s nails, consider seeking guidance from a veterinarian or a professional dog groomer. They can demonstrate the proper technique and provide tips to make the process more comfortable for your dog.
