Routine cutting of your dog's nails will ensure its comfort, looks tidy and prevents it scratching people. A dog with long nails is at risk of injury as it may be ripped off.
Regular nail trimming is important for the long term health of all dogs. Overgrown nails can break easily. The longer the nail, the longer the quick. This can make nail clipping difficult. Long term overgrowth can cause difficulty in walking, pain, soreness and can even contibute to the development of arthritis.
If you can hear your dog's nails clicking on the pavement as you walk then it is an indication that its nails need clipping. A dog that has regular walks, especially on a hard surface like roads and pavements may not need their nails cut as they will become naturally worn down.
Your dogs nails will be checked and trimmed if necessary during every visit.
Nail trimming can be done on a drop in basis, no appointment necessary.
