Every pet parent knows that trimming is an important part of a regular grooming routine for our dogs, and cat, and other critters (see G-Force, The Jumping Bulldog’s guinea pig – customer, who comes in for nail trims!).
Nails that are too long are not only uncomfortable for the pet but also dangerous, as they can cause injury and subsequent infection. Nails can break, which is painful, and sometimes long nails can also cause an irregular gait that leads to skeletal damage.
Here is what you can do to help your pup/ cat to be safe and more comfortable, other than having the vet or your local pet store do it for you.
