Nail Trimming A Vital Part Of Pet Grooming

Nail clipping for some animals is a horrible experience. Your pet may attempt to bite you or try to get away from you, putting both the owner and the animal at serious injury. If you by any means feel nervous about clipping nails, it is better not to even attempt it. Let a pet grooming expert clip your animal nails or have it done the next time you visit the veterinarian.

Most animals do not like pet grooming and the ordeal of nail trimming may possibly be a very stressful time for them. The most effective method is to sit down beside your dog, and began to brush their coat. Once they are calm and comfortable place their paw into your hand. Do not show them the clippers in the beginning, but massage their feet like you would if you were playing with them. Gently put the nail into the opening of the nail trimmers and slowly but firmly clip the nail.

How to clip dog nails

Professional pet groomers are a little more experienced and they clip the nails at a faster rate than the novice. Take your time and take note of how your pet reacts to having their nails clipped. If you do happen to cut the blood vessel in the center the nail, grab a clean cloth or sanitary paper towel to put pressure on the nail until the bleeding stops. If you are cutting the nails within your house the animal may track blood upon your carpet or floor. The pet grooming expert uses different tactics when it comes down to trimming nails.

Pet grooming experts use special precautions when clipping the nails of a dog or cat. The nail trimmers must have the ability to securely go over the diameter of the nail and not angled in any way. To try this task from home, one must know where to cut and how deep down the nail to clip. The trick is to locate the cuticle and not to cut into it. There is a vein that runs part way up the nail starting at the base. Within this vein there are blood vessels and nerve endings. If you should happen to cut into this vein, the nail will begin to bleed and there will certainly be pain involved. If your pet shows any sign of pain stop, what you’re doing and comfort the animal.

An important part of pet grooming is the trimming of your pet’s nails. If you stay in a house with wooden floors, the click, click, click of your pet’s nails when they walk on that floor can drive you crazy. Not only is it irritating for the members of your family, it is an indication that your animal’s nails have to be cut. This is necessary because long nails can cause pain to your animal’s feet and they can possibly be used as a weapon whether intentionally or by accident. The nails can also cause damage to furniture or carpet.
