How to Successfully Clip Your Dog’s Nails Clipping your canine companion’s nails isn’t as straightforward as it may seem but it doesn’t have to be difficult. Use these three easy steps from a Mobile AL veterinarian to successfully trim your dog’s claws. Gather Supplies Gather everything you’ll need first so you don’t have to rush around later. You’ll require a canine-specific set of nail trimmers a styptic pen or powder to staunch any bleeding and a few dog treats. When you’re ready to begin sit down with your dog in a well-lit quiet area of the house. Snip the Tips Hold your dog’s paw in one hand and focus on one nail at a time. Snip just the tip of each nail with the trimmers—if you snip too far you’ll hit the quick which is the vein that runs into each nail. This will cause bleeding but you’ll have your styptic powder on hand to combat the problem. Reward and Repeat Once a full paw is finished reward your dog with a treat before moving on to the other paws. This will help reinforce the notion that nail trimming doesn’t have to be a bad experience Contact your Pet Clinic Mobile AL for more canine nail-trimming advice.
