Dog nail care varies in frequency according to the activity level of the dog. If your dog does a lot of walking and running around on hard surfaces they won't need trimmed as much. Most small dogs, rarely leave the soft comforts of home and need nail trimming quite often.
Without trimming, nails can quickly become ingrown or long enough to make walking uncomfortable. This can cause an irregular gait that can lead to skeletal damage. For at home nail grooming the Li'l Pals Nail Trimmer and Nail File is the perfect small size for little nails. The Peticure Nail Trimmer gently files the nail down. It's easy to use with a built-in safe guard. Keeping nails trimmed saves hardwood floors, furniture and you from scratches.
