Next, place the index finger on the tip of the dog's toe and the thumb on the skin above the paw to fully expose the dog's toenails. After cutting, try to make the cross section of the cut parallel to the floor. The amount of nail trimming shall be very small, and the nail shall not be cut to the light pink area.

If you accidentally cut off too many nails and hurt blood vessels, it should be able to stop the bleeding with hemostatic powder or corn starch and a little pressure. So when should I cut my dog's nails?


There is no specific time interval for cutting the dog's nails, which depends on the number of times and places you take the dog to run every day. A very simple judgment basis - when you hear the dog's crisp clicking sound when walking on the floor, it's time to cut his nails.
