One of the easiest ways
to cut off the most visible and uncontrollable portion of your dog’s nail is to
use a sharp nail tip for dogs. A nail tip is nothing more than a cat scratch or
dog flea comb, but you can now take advantage of this convenience to get rid of
the hair while making it easier to manage and keep clean.
Cats have long nails
and keep their hair well-trimmed, so removing this pet hair is relatively easy.
Dogs have very short nails, which makes trimming them much more difficult.
You will need to groom
your dog regularly to remove any loose or dead flea eggs or a dead bird. You
will need to use flea and bird medications to help your dog get rid of any
fleas that are left behind.
Another good tip for
cutting dogs nails is to use a nail trimmer that has a round, pointed tip. This
design ensures that you don’t cut your dog’s nail too deep.
Keep in mind that while
you are trimming your cat’s nails, you will want to avoid scratching them. This
can be done by rubbing gently on the nail and you will see a red mark appears
before you know it.
The tip of the nail
should be rounded enough to hold a cat’s tail when you trim it. If you find
that you are doing the job incorrectly, you can always look up some helpful
Dogs have some other
tips for shedding dog’s nails as well. These tips are just as important for
your pet as those for cats and can help you keep a nail trim and prevent the
formation of a dry, chapped or cracked one.
The first tip to
remember is to brush your dog after he or she comes home from the vet. Make
sure that you don’t have a post to nail him or her on the way out! Brush all of
your dog’s nails every day with a soft-bristled brush and don’t let him or her
have a treat at the same time.
Dry your dog’s nails as
soon as possible so that you do not have to spend the extra time trimming.
During the spring and summer months, trim your dog’s nails only about once a
week to keep his nails from getting brittle. You will also want to brush them
before you trim them.
Whenever you use a trim
tool, make sure that you spray it with water prior to applying the tool to the
nails. It is important to prevent your dog from biting the tool and it will
help to remove any bacteria that may be on the blade.
Remember that if you
are going to trim your dog’s nails, make sure that you do it every week or even
twice a week. Make your life easier and do a little bit of prevention in order
to enjoy less expensive dog grooming.
