Time for a nail trim?

July 30, 2013

How frequently do you need to trim your pet’s nails?  The answer i
Two things that affect your dog’s nail trimming schedule are their location and their breed. The more active your dog is, the less frequent their nail trim need might be. Walking on rough surfaces can grind down the nail so city dogs and dogs that frequently walk on sidewalks and asphalt need less frequent trimming. Dogs who spend little time outside typically need more frequent trims. Some breeds have nails which grow faster than the average.  For example, Dachshunds and Bassets may need to have their nails groomed more often.s…it depends. There are a number of factors that affect this number and it can range anywhere between three to even eight weeks.

A clear sign of a need for a trim is if you can hear your dog’s nails “click” when he walks, they need to be trimmed. You should also keep an eye out for any changes in your dog’s walk as this might also indicate foot pain from lengthy nails.


Trimming your dog’s nails is important for comfort and good health. Overgrown nails can cause problems such as:

•  Ingrown nails
•  Torn bleeding nails
•  Splayed toes
(deformed feet)
•  Bone and joint problems
•  Hip and back problems
