Keeping Your Dog's Feet Healthy
Donít allow your fear of hurting your dog to prevent you from keeping his feet healthy.
My young Bouvier, Atle, has the triple threat of dog nails: black, stout, and surrounded by lots of hair. Regular nail trimming is not a task I relish, yet the importance of trimming nails canít be underestimated. Left untended, long nails can splinter or break off, affect your dogís gait, and cause orthopedic issues and pain. Although ultra-critical for performance dogs, proper foot care is required for the health and well-being of all dogs Ė couch potato or agility star.
