Reasons for Nail Trims
Reason To Trim Your Dogs Nails
Most pet owners understand how to take proper care of their pet. Many basic grooming procedures consist of brushing, bathing, and getting their hair cut. Some, however, overlook one of the most important tasks in keeping your pet well groomed. This part involves nothing more than keeping your pet's nails neatly trimmed. Believe it or not, this is very important for a pet's health and well being. Several benefits of this process include better mobility, less pain, bonding, and better health.
Mobility - When a dog's claws are allowed to grow too long, basic tasks such as running and walking become painful and more difficult.
Better health - When claws are allowed to grow too long over an extended period of time, health problems can arise. Long nails can cause problems for your pet including infections. These infections are caused by the nail cracking, splitting or breaking.
Increased comfort - If you do not trim a cat's nails often, they may begin scratching in an attempt to shorten their own nails. They may use a variety of surfaces including your furniture. Unfortunately, this also means that they may scratch you and other objects in your home.
