Sometimes it's tough to know where to turn when your dog, cat, iguana, or other friend--feathered or furry--needs their toenails cut. The vet is expensive. Other places are known for the trauma they have caused in some pets.
I don't like to use muzzels and don't use constraining holds. They make a scary situation worse. I have studied alpha behavior and prefer to earn your dog's trust. I hope my work with your pet will earn your trust too.
Sometimes I need to work slowly on a pup because of an injured nail. Just know, if your pup needs special attention they will get it too! I appreciate your patience while I work gently on the pup on my table! :)
First and foremost I am a Christian. My integrity in my business is paramount. When you bring me your pet, I first examine their paws and nails. If they are not of a condition that I can trim them, I will let you know. Then I will give you the best advice I feel suits your situation. I would rather be honest with you and do what is in the best interest of your pet than just take advantage of your thinking I am trimming your pet’s nails. There is no integrity in that and I don’t do business that way. I will show you the how and why of my advice.
This Weekend! May 25 & 26
I will be with Vaccination Station at these Russel Feed locations:
Saturday - I am not at a clinic this Saturday
Sunday - 8704 Highway 377 S
Please come see me at the Benbrook location. We should have better weather this weekend. Come see me! Like always, call, check here or Facebook to be sure! Can't wait to see you!
Cutting toenails often is necessary to keep the quick from growing out. If this happens, often I can't cut the nails and will have to recommend something that allows anesthesia.
Yes, toenails can reach a point of needing urgent care. When they are so long that they are curling and are into the pad they need immediate attention.
Ears and teeth need attention too. If there is a chocolate substance in your dog's ears, clean it out with an ear wash. If you do not see a bad tartar build up, it is fine to brush your dog's teeth.
I love caring for your pets! My schedule is right here on this site on the Contact page. I work almost every day of every weekend. Come See Me!
