  • Can you trim your dogs nails?

If LilyВ scratches you when she jumps up to say hello, or her nails snag your favorite bedspread or hosiery, you can assume a trim is a good idea. Check her nails. В ifВ she isВ licking a paw, you may not realize it, but she could have a broken nail. Being vigilant about checking the state of her nails is especially important if she has flurry feet.

If you have been trimming your dog’s toenails regularly since she was a pup, you probably have an easy time getting her to sit still for it. Otherwise, you may need to have someone help hold her while you do the clipping. You might easily get bitten trying to hold your dog and clip the nails at the same time. That is why we start young.

The one absolute essential for quick, easy toenail cutting is having good, sharp clippers. You have to be careful not to cut into the quick, the blood rich skin located inside the nail. Dark nails can be especially troublesome, as the quick is much harder to see. Start on the end of the toenail and makes several nips with the clippers. When you start to see the dark dot in the middle of the white tip of the trimmed nail, it is time to stop. Do not forget to trim your dog’s dewclaws, those located higher up the leg, and because they don’t normally get worn down, they can easily become ingrown.

If you accidentally cut the quick of the nail and it bleeds, apply pressure using a towel or a styptic pen, flour, cornstarch, or silver nitrate to stop the bleeding. A pet store sells “quick stop” at a relatively low cost to keep on hand just in case. You may also press the nail into a bar of soap and drag it gently, which will cause the bleeding to stop and not hurt. But Lily will let you it how  it hurts, don’t be fooled by their ability to dramatize the situation. It will look like a lot of blood, but it really isn’t, and yes, she felt it, but it is not as painful as the she will act.
