why keeping your dogs nails short

Trimming your dog’s nails is a vital grooming task that helps her stay happy and healthy. When you don’t keep your dog’s nails well-trimmed, they can end up growing too long, which can cause problems. Find out why keeping your dog’s nails short is important and how your pooch will benefit.

Reasons to Trim Dog Nails

Long, unkempt nails can do serious damage to your dog. When nails are so long that they constantly touch the ground, they exert force back into the nail bed, creating pain and pressure on the toe joint. 

Long-term, this can realign the joints of the foreleg and make the foot look flattened and splayed. Compromising your dog’s weight distribution and natural alignment can make them more susceptible to injuries. In addition, it also makes walking and running difficult and painful. 

Keeping your dog’s nails trimmed will help to alleviate these issues and keep your dog from experiencing undue nail, leg, and foot pain so they can easily run and walk.
