NAIL IT!

Fairlady - - HEAVY PETTING -

When dogs spend time run­ning and play­ing out­doors, hard sur­faces (in­clud­ing ce­ment and bricks) wear down their nails, keep­ing them short. For pups that pre­fer the couch, it will be nec­es­sary to keep their nails trimmed. Long nails that con­stantly touch the ground cause pain and pres­sure on the toe joint, and cause your pet to dis­trib­ute their weight un­evenly. This af­fects their nat­u­ral align­ment and can lead to in­juries. Older dogs will suf­fer more. It’s not easy to cut nails your­self – rather take your dog to the vet.
