Dog Grooming and Nail Trimming for Dogs
Some dogs are very good at wearing their nails down during regular exercise, but dogs that are less active or elderly will need their nails trimmed to keep them at a proper length. With regular trimming your dog is less likely to tear a nail, you will hear less toe taping when your pet walks around, and the in extreme cases it will make it easier for them to walk around.
How often should I cut my dog’s nails?
The rate at which nails grow varies from patient to patient. You can try trimming the nails once a month and see if that is sufficient for maintaining an acceptable length.
