Since pet (rabbit, dog, cat...) are not able to dig and wear down their claws inside your house or apartment, their nails will invariably grow too long. Keeping your pet’s nails at an appropriate length is very important. Long nails may potentially curl into your pet’s foot, or they may snag on something, causing great discomfort to your pet.
Clipping your pet’s nails may seem a daunting task. And many pet owners elect to let their veterinarian handle it. Frequent vet visits can get expensive, however. So here is some advice on trimming your pet’s nails yourself.
It is easier to trim your pet’s nails quickly and effectively when the pet is properly restrained. If possible, ask someone to assist you and then wrap your pet in a towel to reduce movement and to isolate each paw.
Examine the claw to locate the vein inside the nail. This vein is called the quick, and you should avoid cutting it. Cutting the quick will cause your pet to experience some pain, and he/she will bleed. Some pets’ nails are quite dark, so you will need a small flashlight to see it. If you do accidentally trim the nails too short, use flour or styptic powder to stop the bleeding.
Some pets are startled by the sound of clipping. In these situations, you may consider simply filing the nails down, but this may be a long process if your pet’s nails are quite long.
