Just like our fingernails, a dog’s nails grow throughout their lifetime. Depending on age, activity levels, and surfaces walked on, the nails may need trimming from time to time. Dewclaws which are similar to our thumbs don’t touch the ground and may need more frequent trimming. Overly long nails can distort the toes and affect how your pet walks. Long nails are more likely to get caught and torn too. Our staff can help teach you how to trim your dog’s nails or perform it for you.
