Why Do Nails Matter?
Your dog’s long nails are not just an unsightly
nuisance and are already too long if you can hear him coming on a hard floor.
Have you ever had bruised nail beds because your own
toenails were too long and bumped the end of your shoes for a day?
Overgrown nails can be the cause of crooked toes,
deformed feet, cruciate ligament, spinal
and other chiropractic problems, all of which cost thousands of pounds
to get fixed and may require your dog to be on unnecessary and expensive
medication for the rest of its life.
Long nails can also cause a dog to become exercise
intolerant, this in turn could lead to obesity… which could cause diabetes… Do
we really need we go on?
You cannot just cut long nails short in
The quick has as many nerve endings as your finger tips
so cutting through them IS NOT AN OPTION! The quick grows down and out with the
nail. Typically its only 2mm behind the nail tip.
If the tip is removed, the quick “protects itself” by
shrivelling back. So within 10 days you can take another 2mm off the nail, but
if you leave it longer than that, the nail will have grown out too, and your
back to square one.
