Probably the best way to keep your beloved pets nails trimmed, would be to take them to a trusted professional groomer. But we can’t always afford to take them to the groomers. So what are we to do. I tend to always have the vet do Foxy and Cleo’s when we take them in for shots. But there is still those in between times.
I am always afraid to use regular clippers. I know there is an area you don’t want to hit, because of the vein. I just don’t want to mess with that.
Lately I have been using a nail grinder for dogs. The one I have been using is available on Amazon. It is the Premium Pet Nail Grinder from Luvao.
Of course it was no easy feat using the grinder. You have to let your dog warm up to it.. I think it is rare that you will find a dog that will place its paw up and sit content while you do its nails. With Foxy and Cleo we had to let them smell it. Then we had to turn it on so that they could investigate it. After doing that for several days we were finally able to manage to get them to hold still while we did their nails. Even after all that we still got backlash from Foxy. He is a vocal little canine and I am so happy I don’t always know what he is saying.
As far as the grinder itself, it is really a nice one.
