Sedating dogs nail clipping
Working and herding breeds of dogs are active and generally have compact feet with well arched toes that angle the toenails downward towards the ground.If these dogs are active on hard surfaces such as gravel, rock and concrete, their nails may not need trimming until they slow down with age and exercise less.An antibiotic injection is also given to prevent infection.
Giving them a treat after each nail is clipped keeps their attention elsewhere, and keeps them holding still and being good.
TOENAIL CAUTERY: The quick grows out as the toenail grows longer.
Keeping the toenails cut short allows normal walking pressure to keep the quick short.

NAIL TRIMMING PROCEDURE: Handle their feet You will want to start by getting your pet used to having their feet handled.
