Dog nail clippers make trimming pets claws an easy task, and for a perfectly turned out pet, a guillotine nail trimmer is the best choice.
Dogs can have the need for a regular manicure probably more than humans do; hence the need for trimmers. 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.
There’s an easy way to know if your dog is overdue nail clipping and that is the sound of click-click-click of the nails on hard floors. You can take your dog to a professional groomer for a manicure, or you can do it yourself.
There are a few vital things to bear in mind if you are going to do it yourself. You need the right clipper, and you need to have some knowledge of the anatomy of your dog’s paw. Without these you will have a recipe for disaster on your hands.
Everyone knows how sore it is when you cut your nail too low – the same goes for dogs, so it is important to know where the nerve starts. You need to cut below the quick, which is easy to identify by the end of the pink color.
Bamboo Guillotine Nail Clippers are the correct tools for the job too. Safe and efficient clippers, with an ergonomic handle that is easy to grip and won’t slip or wear out your hand. Some dogs find nail clipping stressful, so the ultra sharp blades of the Guillotine Nail Clippers make the cutting as easy and stress-free as possible, even with tough nails.
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.
Once the major clipping has been done, taking care not to trim the nails too short, check the edges for jagged or rough edges and tidy up.
Clearly extreme caution must be taken when trimming the nails, otherwise you may snip a very sensitive area of your dog’s foot, and he won’t thank you for it! If by accident you do manage to cut the quick use Gimborn Kwik Stop Styptic Gel with Benzocaine to stop bleeding immediately.
Bamboo Guillotine Nail Clippers are excellent tools for either home or professional use. They are a great investment too as they are designed to last and perform like new.
These dog nail trimmers are great both for the dog with sharp blades to make nail trimming stress free, and for the owner with the ergonomic design to reduce stress on the body and the chance of accidents.
