You cut my dogs nails but they are still long - why?

Some dogs have longer quicks. Quicks are very sensitive nerves inside the dog's nails that when cut will cause pain and bleeding.

We try to cut as close to the quick as possible without cutting the quick. If your dog's nails have not been cut in a while and they are really long, we will most likely not be able to cut them all the way back in one grooming session. You will need to bring your dog back bi-weekly so that the quick has time to draw back into the nail and we gradually can work the nail back to desirable length.
