Benefits of Batavia Dog Nail Grinding at WoofBeach, 1840 Mill Street.
Keeping a dog’s nails at an appropriate length is more than just a matter of cosmetics. Overgrown nails can result in pain for the dog, scratches for the owner and even tear up household furniture and flooring. At Woofbeach, our professional Batavia Dog Nail Grinding services solve that issue and will keep your pet’s nails at a healthy length.
The specialized nail grinders we use are perfect for safely trimming and smoothing out a dog’s nails while lowering the risk of cutting into the cuticle bed of nail. Batavia Dog Nail Grinding results in a smoothed nail end that significantly reduces scratching, which is especially important for reducing accidental dog scratch wounds for seniors or children.
A dog’s nail consists of the “quick” and the hardened, outer material around the quick known as the shell. The quick is what supplies blood to the dog’s nail and circulates through the central core. There are nerves within the quick that can bleed and be quite painful if accidentally cut. Consistent nail trimming will help cause the quick to naturally move away from the end. Shorter quicks are the optimal length for a dog’s health and for maintenance. Overgrown dog nails can turn a healthy paw into a splayed paw with reduced traction, and can even cause injury to the tendons over a long period. This happens when an overgrown nail makes contact with the ground, which results on pressure upon the animal’s foot and leg.
