Long Toe Nails On Your Dog

If you do not trim your dogs nails they will eventually become so long that when the pet puts his foot down the first thing that hits the floor is his nail.

This in turn pushes back into his foot and you can imagine that after days or weeks of this, his foot will become extremely sore.

Trim your pets nail or take them to a groomer to have them trimmed.  I tried to take him to the vet for a trimming but the vet wanted to charge too much.  I found a local groomer who took walk in nail trimming.

Long toe nails can be very painful.  Keep them in shape and your dog will be more comfortable.
