Trying to figure out how far up to clip your dog's nails? This is one of the more unsettling aspects of nail trims for many pet parents. It isn't like trimming human nails, which can be taken all the way down to the fingertips. Dogs use their nails for traction, which may be why the quick of the nail isn't right at the skin line like ours is.
Many dogs have both white and dark nails, and dark ones are especially tricky because you can't really see the pinkish quick, which is the blood vessel inside the nail that nourishes it. Come to Food 4 Paws and ask one of our nail trimming pet experts about how you can receive a nail trim today!
