Things To Know Beforehand
Before trimming the nail, always examine the nail first. Locate the QUICK so that you don’t accidentally cut it while trimming. It can be hard to detect a QUICK in dark colored nails.
The QUICK runs down the center of the nail and contains blood vessels and nerve endings. This grows as the nail grows, so if you wait a long time between cuttings, the quick will be closer to the end of the nail. This means more likelihood of bleeding during trimming. So be careful and pay attention.
If the nail is long, you may need to trim the nails more frequently until the quick retracts so that you can trim the nail to the final desired length. Try to trim your pet’s nails weekly. Keeping nails neat and tidy will be more comfortable for your pet and also helps in avoiding unpleasant scratches to your skin or furniture.
Indoor pets need more nail trimming than outdoor pets. This is because there is natural wear and tear when the pet is playing outside.
If you accidentally cut into the QUICK, the nail may bleed. In this scenario, use a clotting agent (such as a styptic powder or corn starch) to stop the bleeding.
Instructions On Using This Product
- Finding a quiet area with minimal or no disruptions is definitely going to help you get the job done easily.
- Sit next to your pet. Pet and praise them for reassurance. A relaxed pet will more willingly cooperate.
- Hold the paw gently but securely. Examine the nail to be cut and locate the QUICK so you won’t actually cut the QUICK.
- The movable arms should be controlled by your fingers, just like when you use scissors.
- Gradually clip off the end of the nail. Trim the nail using a single, steady pressure move.
- Start slowly if you think your pet is nervous or afraid. Consider trimming only one nail to start with until your pet is fully relaxed.
- Be conservative when trimming dark nails or when it is difficult to locate the QUICK.
- If you do cut too close and bleeding occurs, use styptic powder or corn starch to stop the bleeding.
