Dog Nail Clippers

Keeping your dog's nails trim is an important part of dog grooming and keeping him healthy. Long nails can lead to issues like ingrown nails and overall discomfort when walking. Trimming his nails, monthly or bimonthly depending on your dog's need, will help avoid these issues. As a bonus, consistent trimmings will help your dog get used to the habit, keeping him calmer over time. To clip your dog's nails, be careful not to go too short, as doing so could cause pain to your best friend. If your dog has white nails, you can hold his paw up to the light to see where the quick, or tender inner portion of the nail, begins—it will have a pinkish color. Be careful to not cut into the quick. If your dog has black nails, you won't be able to see the quick, and should only trim off the tip of his nail. This will help ensure you don't clip into the quick. If you accidentally cut too short, don't panic. You can use a quick-stop product, a specialized powder that stops the bleeding in these circumstances. If you do cut into the quick, give your dog a break from nail trimming until he has a chance to calm down.
