Proper nail care for your dog is very important to his health. Letting your dog's nails get too long can cause ingrown nails and bad walking patterns that can cause leg and hip problems. You know your dog needs a nail trim when he clicks as he walks on the floor. Dog nail grinders, like the PediPaw, have become popular trimming options since ground nails do not grow as quickly and it is hard to hit the quick. Scissor-type, guillotine, or plier-type trimmers are also popular. After your pup has his nail trimmed, you can put on nail caps to help prevent damage to your floors.
