Most of us realize that our dog needs a nail trim when our legs get scratched or our nylons ruined, but the reality is that dogs need their nails kept short to avoid possible pain and discomfort, infections and in severe cases problems with their paws and joints. A dog walking with overlong nails is much like us walking with a pebble in our shoes. A very easy check to determine if your dog’s nails are too long is to visually inspect each foot or simply listen as your dog crosses the kitchen floor. If you hear that Click, Click, Click that means your dog needs a nail trim. We can trim your dog's nails at Green Acres or we can show you how to do it yourself at home.
