Why do I need to have my dog's nails cut?

E-mail Print PDF

Trimming a dog's nails regularly is essential to avoid long term health problems and discomfort. A healthy, strong paw needs short, welltrimmed nails. Some big dog that walk a lot on hard surfaces actually do a pretty good job of trimming their own nails, but most dogs are not that lucky.

If you can hear clicking sounds when your dog walks across the floor, it’s most likely time to have them trimmed.

The nails can appear sharp after cutting, and if you think your dog is scratching you, request that the nails get filed or grinded.
