Video: How to Trim your Dog's Nails Easily

If you want to trim your dog's nails at home, but have been hesitant, watch this short "how to" video.

 Dr. Sims, using Maisie as a willing "demo dog," and with Cynthia assisting, explains how to do it without stress for you or your dog.

 The key is to keep your dog happy with treats and/or distractions and comforting words.  You will need to look at each nail and find the "quick" which is the pink area inside the nail that contains the blood vessels and nerves.  Trim only the area away from the quick.  Don't forget dew claws if your dog has them.

Give your dog a break if they become stressed.  Happy trimming!
