Animals with long nails are vulnerable to having damaged nails that can cause an infection to develop where the nail connects to the paw. We want to keep this from happening by ensuring that your pet’s nails are trimmed and cleaned regularly. If you have an active lifestyle and an active pet, then you need to bring your pet to us for a proper nail trim. The process doesn’t take long, so your dog will be in and out in no time. Keep the paws safe on your pet by receiving an expert nail trim from our studio, and don't forget those pearly whites ask about our teeth cleanings.
Cracked nails can develop in the same way that a human does. However, unlike humans, pet’s nails originate internally and grow outwards almost like a human finger. A human nail will generally fall off when it is damaged before it regrows. Pet nails are different because they will not fall off when they are damaged. Instead, the cracks can spread into the base of the nail where it originates and cause an infection to develop. Not just infections, but severe pain for your pet. This can be avoided when nails are properly trimmed and kept at an appropriate length.
Dogs have cuticles that are known as quicks. However, they are not external like humans. Dog quicks are internal and can often be seen as a blue or red line in clearer nails. Dark nailed dogs can be hard to determine where the cuticle is located. Our staff are experts and know how short the nail can go without cutting into the quick. This is very important since the quick can be painful to your dog and lead to bleeding. Rest easy knowing that our staff is capable of cutting any color nails with careful focus.
Our tools are always cleaned and prepared to cut nails. Just because we do the beauty and aesthetics on animals doesn’t mean that we don’t take pride in having hygienic equipment. We hold our staff to the same standards as a professional beauty salon, and our equipment is cleaned to the level that is safe to use on humans. Feel relaxed when you drop your pet off and know that they are being maintained with state-of-the-art equipment that is being cleaned beyond recommended standards. We will always provide the best services with the cleanest tools in El Paso, TX.
A dog that is stressed will be panicky, snappy, and can potentially hurt our staff and themselves. Therefore, we will not perform the nail trim until the pet is at ease and feels comfortable with our staff and tools. We have expert handlers who know how to present the process to your pets so that they feel relaxed and will remain calm through the nail trim. There is no need to force your dog into having their nails cut when you select El Paso Pawfect Pet as your go to pet grooming company in the city.
