Our Dog Nail Trimming Is More than Just a Pawdicure

Whether they’re scratching up floors or tearing the couch apart, a dog’s overgrown nails aren’t just a concern to pet owners — they can be a real hassle for pups too. Regular dog nail trimming keeps nails at a reasonable length and helps maintain the health and well-being of your furry friend. But trimming your pup’s nails isn’t the same as cutting your own. In this article, we’ll delve into the effects of long nails on your dog’s health and why seeking professional assistance is important.

How do Overgrown Nails Affect Your Dog’s Well-Being?

In addition to the damage they may inflict on your favorite items, like tearing into your new leather bag or ripping up the carpet, your pup’s overgrown nails can cause other health-related problems too. Long nails can break or split, causing your pup severe pain and discomfort when walking, running, or playing, and can even lead to infections like canine papillomavirus. The pain can also affect your dog’s gait, making it difficult for them to walk properly and potentially causing long-term damage to their joints and posture. 

The benefits of regular nail trimming go beyond just preventing health issues – it can also improve your dog’s overall behavior and mood. Dogs with overgrown nails can become irritable and anxious because they’re constantly uncomfortable and in pain, but sadly, they cannot let you know. Regular nail trims can alleviate these issues and help your dog feel more relaxed and happy. Let’s not forget about the aesthetic benefits – nothing looks better than a well-groomed pup with perfectly trimmed nails (and a couch without holes).

petbar’s Professional Pet Spa Dog Groomers Give Your Pup the Best Care

Getting your dog’s nails trimmed doesn’t have to be a stressful experience for them or you! Nail trimming is generally considered an easy task for our professional groomers, as they have the necessary experience and training to handle dogs and perform the task safely and efficiently. Our groomers also have the right tools, such as specialized nail clippers and grinders, to make the process easier and less stressful for the dog and the groomer. 

So why can’t you just buy the tools and do it yourself? Well, dog nails have more than one layer, unlike ours. Their nails have two primary layers: a nerveless outer layer that is much like ours, and a sensitive blood vessel and a nerve called the “quick.” Taking extra care when trimming is important to avoid injuring the quick — that’s why it’s best to seek the help of a professional groomer who is trained and experienced in giving your pup the best care possible.

Our groomers also know how to handle even the most skittish animals and can make the process as easy and stress-free as possible. And there’s more! petbar’s nail trimming service also includes a paw massage, which not only feels great for your pup but can also help improve blood circulation and reduce swelling. Plus, it’s just plain adorable to watch your dog relax and enjoy a spa-like experience!
