Maintaining the length of your dogs nails is an important part of their grooming routine. Aside from aesthetic reasons, shorter nails are more desirable as they are safer and healthier. Overgrown nails can chip and break causing pain for your dog. Nails that are too long or curled under may also make it difficult for your dog to walk properly, which may affect the rest of their body and even lead to arthritis. Here at The Woof Room, we offer nail trimming and grinding among our other doggy spa services.
Nail Trim- $5.00
Nail Grinding- $10.00
You may be wondering about the difference between the two and why nail grinding is more expensive than a trim. For the trims, we use a scissor type nail clipper specifically designed for dogs. This is a great option to remove excess length and make the process a little quicker for a dog who may be nervous about getting his nails cut. For the grinding, we use a professional electric nail grinder to remove length and smooth out the edge of the nail. Grinding is the preferred method for getting as close as possible to the quick (the nerves and blood vessels inside the nail) without cutting it, as we are able to take off smaller amounts at a time. It also removes any sharp edges and keeps the nails nice and smooth.
