How important is it to trim your Dog's Toe Nails? Very important! Below is a picture that show Toe Nails that have been neglected. Untrimmed Toe Nails can cause a variety of problems. They can get caught in carpet or bedding and cause the nail to be ripped from the nail bed. I have seen it! If neglected for long periods of time the nail will curl itself around and become imbedded in the pads of the feet. Very painful!
Untrimmed nails will displace the normal position of the toes, causing splaying and over time can hinder the dogs joints and even normal walking! It takes me less then 2-3 minutes to avoid all of this. You don't need and appointment for Toe Nail trims. Call the Salon 5 minutes prior to arriving just to give me a heads up!
