As part of your dog’s grooming, have you checked their paws recently?
Do their nails need trimming? Are your dog’s paws hairy or have excess hair between the pads? Or perhaps they have dry and /or cracked pads?
Keeping your dog’s paws in top condition is so important to their overall health and wellbeing but also easily neglected
The dog groomers at Plush Pawz can help and advise you with this crucial part of your dog’s grooming and this in turn can help avoid future problems which can effect fitness and health.
Clipping your dog’s nails
Although your dog may not like it and it’s not always easy, it’s vital to keep their nails trimmed.
Long nails have an effect on your dog’s weight distribution, making them put more weight on the back of their paws increasing the risk of slipping, falling or injuring themselves.
Having un-trimmed nails also makes your dog’s toes part when they walk, allowing all sorts of dirt etc to get between them, making it painful to walk. And, like ours, as their nails continually grow, they could eventually embed in the paw pad….ouch!
Trimming the hair on your dog’s feet
It is also essential to keep the hair beneath the pad of your dog’s paw trimmed. With all the rain, comes dirt and mud which builds up on the excess hair making it very difficult for your dog to walk and sometimes painful, a bit like mud caking on the bottom of your boots or shoes.
