We gave Scooby Dee a bath and gave her a nail trim.
How many people bathe and give their own pet a nail trim versus going to a groomer?
Are you afraid to trim nails because they might bleed?
Although I keep quick stop handy, I have a pair of nail clippers from Furminator with a nail guard. It helps keep me from going too short on the nail and hitting the quick.
The quick is a vein that grows with the nail, so I would recommend going slow, especially on black nails. Take a look at what you have trimmed. If there is a black dot in the center, you are approaching the quick and should stop.
Scooby is not fond of her nails and can sense the trimmers from a dead sleep. I have Bob hold her and I trim her that way. Its ok to tag team your dog (or cat).
Any questions, just ask!!
