Manicures and pedicures

Are your pet’s nails growing like crazy and need a cut? Here are some helpful tips to help make the process easier.

  • Always use sharp nail trimmers, as dull ones can damage your pet’s nails.

  • Get help from a loved one or friend. One person holds and the other cuts the nails.
  • Use lots of treats to make it a positive experience.
  • Do many small cuts on the nail, rather than one larger cut to avoid hitting the quick of the nail. Once you see a black or pink dot, stop cutting as you are very close to the nerve.

Still not 100% confident? Call and book an appointment and we will take the stress out of the nail trim.
