Did you know that your dogs and cats can bleed from nail trimming?

How to Trim Your Dog's Nails:
-advice from a groomer

Trim your pet's nails about once per month. You'll need a clipper designed specifically for the kind of companion animal you have. Either a scissor, or gullotine-style clipper can be used. You should also purchase a small bottle of blood-clotting powder.

  1. Have your companion animal sit beside you.
  2. Then place one of his or her paws in your hand and gently pull it forward. If your pet dislikes being handled this way, slowly accustom him or her to it by offering treats and praise.
  3. Gradually shorten one nail. Be sure to stop before you reach the quick, which is the part of the nail that contains nerves and blood vessels.
  4. If you cut into the quick, do not panic. Put some clotting powder on a moist cotton swab and press it firmly against the nail for several seconds.
  5. Repeat the preocess until all of your companion animal's nails have been trimmed.
  6. Do not forget to trim the dewclaw, which is located on the inside of each front leg just above the paw. (Some dogs do not have dewclaws.
