Nail Trimming: Why cut your dog’s nails?
Unless your dog is so active it wears its nails down, you’ll need to get them cut for the following reasons:
- Torn nails are painful and easily infected requiring soaking and long-term antibiotics or surgical removal.
- Dogs don’t walk correctly when the nails are too long and this strains the leg muscles and torques the spine.
- Long nails grow around and into the bottom of the foot. The dewclaw nail will grow into the leg. Ingrown nails are often infected, are always painful, and make some dogs downright mean.
- Nails help provide traction and increase a pet’s ability to walk and run without slipping. Pets with excessively long nails hurt themselves because they slip and fall.
