Trimming claws A dog’s nails are softer after a bath, so that is the time to trim them if necessary. Most dogs’ nails wear down naturally.
*Use canine nail clippers to cut the nails diagonally, taking off no more than an eighth of an inch so (a few millimeters). Or ask the vet to show you how much to cut. Gently smooth the edges with a nail file or sandpaper.
*Take great care not to cut the nails to the”quick”, the pink area inside the nail; its living tissue with blood supply and nerves.
