Your pet's claw has blood vessels known as the 'quick'. It is important that you do not cut into this area. It is easier to locate the quick by looking on the underside of the nail, if in doubt seek advice of your vet or pet groomer.
Hold your pet's foot carefully and ensure that you are in complete control before starting to trim the nail.
Cut in one smooth action. If you are unsure cut off a small amount at a time.
Keeping your pet's nails trimmed is essential for good care and grooming. If you pet is particularly nervous or dislikes having their claws clipped, try using a Mikki Nail File.
