Nail Trimming

Feb 15, 2016 9:02AM

Trimming your dog’s nails may not seem that important to you, but it’s definitely important to your dog! Peyton knows that long nails make walking uncomfortable for his Boston Terrier, August, so he’s learning how to trim them. The veterinary technician shows him how to use a tool specially designed for dogs. Peyton clips off just the right amount. Ouch! If he cuts into the quick (the inner part of the nail where blood vessels and nerves are), August will yelp!

Do you take care of your family’s pet? Ask your veterinarian to show you how to trim your dog’s nails so you can keep those paws in good working order.
