Nail Clipping

Just like us, pets need a little pampering now and then. Ascot Vet recommends regular nail clipping as part of your pet’s routine care. If your pet’s nails grow too long, they have a greater chance of catching on things, splitting, breaking or causing pain. How often you’ll need to trim their nails depends on your pet and their lifestyle, but the main focus should be on keeping your pet happy and healthy.


Indoor Pets

Indoor cats and dogs will need a trim about once a month to help keep their nails healthy and your furniture and floors scratch free. This could change depending on your pet’s lifestyle, so it’s important to keep an eye on their feet. If you hear a change in the sound of your dog’s paws on hard floors, that’s a pretty good indication it’s time for a trim.


Outdoor Pets

Working breeds, such as herding dogs, or active pets, will not need much assistance, particularly if they’re running on hard surfaces like gravel, rock or concrete. We recommend checking their dew claws (the little claws on the inside of their front legs) to make sure they’re in good shape.

We offer nail clipping services and can assist in teaching you the best way to safely and comfortably clip your pet’s nails at home.

At Ascot Vet, we prioritise your pet’s holistic health and wellbeing. Have questions about nail clipping or need to schedule your pet for an appointment? Give us a call at 9277 7488.
