Trimming your pet’s nails is more than just a way to protect your floors and furniture. It is an important step in keeping your dog or cat healthy and happy. If nails become too long, they can cause pain or infections and may lead to difficulty in walking. You can do the clipping on your own using nail clippers or make routine trips to the groomer or veterinarian for professional help.
There are two styles of nail clippers — a scissors type and a guillotine type. Owners should choose the design that works the best for them.
