In this newsletter we would like to share with you some information and tips about nail trimming for your paw baby! There are many reasons to keep your pet's nails maintained, the most pertinent being when nails grow too long on them, it can lead to health problems. Nails that begin to curl and grow into the pad can become infected and are very painful for your pet. Long nails will also get in the way of your pet being able to walk correctly, which can strain their leg muscles and if left untreated, can eventually torque the spine.
When your paw baby's nails start clicking against the floor, it's a sign that it's time for a trim! Pets that spend most of their time indoors may need a trim every other week while others that are conditioned outdoors may only need their nails clipped once a month. Pets that aren't used to having their nails trimmed or have sensitive paws require more care and attention and will need help feeling comfortable during the trimming process. One thing you can do is rub their legs and paws everyday to get them used to being handled for nail trimming.
