Perfect Nails Made Easy By Guillotine Nail Trimmers.

Jul 20, 2008
It is vital to keep a dog's nails trimmed short enough.

If the nails grow too long, many health problems can result, such as bleeding and broken nails and ingrown nails.

Your dog's paws need to be kept in tip top condition as he uses them all the time.

Does a tapping sound from your dog's nails seem familiar? If so it's time for a trim; so the next question is do you go to a pro or do you trust yourself anout to do it at home?

There are a few vital things to bear in mind if you are going to do it yourself.

Invest in a high quality set of trimmers, and ensure you know exactly where to cut the nail.

Without these you will have a recipe for disaster on your hands.

The quick is the area to watch for when you trim your dog's nails, you should cut below this. It is easy with dogs with transparent or light coloured nails but harder with dark nails so take care!

Firstly let's look at the equipment; Master Grooming Tools Guillotine Nail Clippers are a great solution, as they are designed with the user in mind with non-slip, low impact grip so your hand won't get tired and you won't lose your grip even if it's wet. The sharp blades mean that trimming is easy and safe.

Next let's look at the procedure for cutting nails.

It is often best to sit with your dog in your lap, holding his paw firmly, but not roughly.

Push on the pad to extend the nail and trim the nail below the quick at a 45 degree angle. Trim only small amounts at a time.

Finish the nails off by checking you haven't left sharp or uneven edges.

It's so important to trim the nail carefully as you can seriously hurt your dog with a slip of the hand - and you will know about it!

If an accident does happen with the trimmers, reach for Gimborn Kwik Stop Styptic Gel with Benzocaine to stop blood flow.

These trimmers are great for home or salon use. A pair of Master Grooming Tools Guillotine Nail Clippers will last a good time too as they are made to last and perform well.

They are a great investment too as they are designed to last, and perform well with a lifetime guarantee.

The trimmers are great both for the dog, with sharp blades to make nail trimming stress free, and good for the owner with the ergonomic design to reduce stress on the body or the chance of accidents.
