Nail Trims For Dogs : The Benefits
By Zoe of Sarah’s Pet Sitting
Nail trims for dogs are necessity for the health of your companion. It can be overlooked and may not seem as urgent as a grooming. It is a preventative health measure that protects your dog. Cats have an easier solution, which is to scratch their post. If you have a dog, getting a hold of a paw may prove difficult. It is important to desensitize your pup to having their feet touched to prepare for when it is time for a nail trim.
The benefits of having your dog’s nails trimmed regularly can improve not only their comfort walking, but reduces the potential injury of ingrown nails and sliding on floors. This can also help the quality of life in the family. Have a pup who jumps? Ensure regular trimmings to keep owners’ legs and arms scratch free. Dog scratches can break the skin and not so welcome bacteria may be found under their nails. If dog nails can break skin, hardwood floors and bedding can also be damaged. Of course this behavior is not on purpose, but it can be eased with a trim.
