One of the most important responsibilities as a pet owner is the trimming of your pets nails. Yet, most people tend to ignore them.
It is imperative for your pet's well-being that their nails be off the ground for their ability to walk properly.
As the nails grow, they curl down and under making the pet walk on their nails instead of on their paws, which is not only extremely painful but damages their skeletal structure causing arthritis, pain, weight gain, difficulty walking, splayed feet, tendon tear or strain and spinal misalignment. All of which can be prevented from regular monthly trimming.
A great tool we have at our disposal is a dremel. We can proficiently trim the nails back with trimmers but also smooth the nails with a dremel so we can get the nail back as far as the nail can go, helping to recede the blood vessel inside. In return this makes the nails shorter and prevents jagged edges, which we all know can tear our skin open if the pet jumps on us or even scratch open their own skin causing other issues.
