Nail Care

Most dogs will maintain their claws at the correct length whilst excercising on firm surfaces. If the claws become too long they may need clipping.

As a rule of thumb the claw should end on a line projected straight out of line of the pad. If the claw goes much past this line clipping will be needed.

There is a blood vessel in the middle of the claw and care must be taken to avoid this. In whit claws the level of the blood vessel is usually obvious but in dark claws an estimation of the position is required before clipping the claw.

If you call a vet out of hours, please bear in mind that they may have just worked a full day shift AND will probably be doing another full shift the following day.

Please be aware that out of hours visits and consultations have a surcharge.

Please dont call a vet out for routine or minor matters.
