Proper Dog Nail Health

Proper dog nail health is important for the overall health of your fur friend.

Once they’re too long, the quick (the vein) will grow longer into the nail, which makes it impossible to trim the nails back far enough.

Save Your Floors – Save Your Skin

Short nails will also save your hardwood floors and nicely rounded nails, rather than clipped nails leaving sharp edges will also save your skin from scratches.

How Do You Know If the Nails Are Too Long?

If you can hear the nails clicking on the floor – they’re too long and you’re compromising your dog’s nail health.

If this is the case with your dog’s nails, you need to work on trimming them back a little bit every week, getting them as close to the quick as possible, so that the vein starts to naturally recede farther back into the nail.

Properly trimming a dog’s nails is a skill that should often be left to the professionals, and especially if you are nervous, uncertain, or have difficulties doing this yourself, it’s best to enlist the help of a professional on a regular basis.

If you’re a K-9 Super Heroes Dog Whispering client, “pawdicures” are one of the exclusive extra services we offer to our furry clients.

We use a specially designed Dremel tool to safely and painlessly grind down the nails to get them as short as possible, and then we finish up with an anti-bacterial Neem oil treatment for the paws and nails.
