Nail Care


As a pet owner, it's important to keep up with your furry friend's grooming needs, including regular nail trims. Not only do overgrown nails look unsightly, but they can also cause discomfort and even lead to health problems for your dog or cat. Long nails can become ingrown, making it painful for your pet to walk or even stand, and can also make it difficult for them to grip surfaces. While some pets may wear down their nails naturally, others may require regular trimming to maintain proper length. By keeping your pet's nails trimmed, you'll help prevent these issues and keep your furry friend healthy and happy.


To safely and stress-free trim your pet's nails, it's important to use the right tools and techniques. Pet nail clippers come in different sizes to suit pets of different breeds and should be sharp to avoid crushing or splitting the nail. Before attempting to trim your pet's nails, it's important to familiarize them with the process and handle their paws regularly to avoid discomfort or fear. It's also important to avoid cutting the quick to prevent pain and bleeding. 


It's best to start getting your pet used to nail trims at a young age, and to use high-quality nail clippers designed specifically for pets. If you're unsure how to trim your pet's nails safely or if your pet is particularly fearful or uncooperative, consult with your veterinarian or a professional groomer for guidance. With regular nail trims, you can ensure your pet stays comfortable, healthy, and looking their best. We can help!

Nail Trim Only

Dogs and Cats: $20.00

To trim their nails, use a pair of pet nail clippers and avoid the quick, which is the part of the nail that contains blood vessels and nerves. If your pet has dark nails and you can't see the quick, trim a little bit at a time until you see a small black dot in the center of the nail. Reward your pet with treats and praise afterwards to make the experience positive for them. By keeping your pet's nails trimmed, you'll help prevent discomfort and keep your furry friend healthy and happy.

Nail Grind Only

Dogs and Cats: $20.00

To grind your dog or cat's nails, you can use a pet nail grinder. This can be less stressful for your pet than using clippers. Simply hold the grinder against the nail and gently grind away the tip, avoiding the quick. Be sure to take breaks and reward your pet with treats and praise throughout the process. Keeping your pet's nails maintained is important for their overall health and wellbeing.


Nail Trim + Grind

Dogs and Cats: $30.00

Grinders can help smooth out any rough edges left by clippers. 

Nail Cap Application

Cats: $20.00 trim + $5.00 per paw nail cap application

As a cat owner, if you're looking for an alternative to declawing your cat, you may want to consider nail caps. Nail caps are small plastic covers that fit over your cat's claws and can prevent damage to furniture and other surfaces. They can also prevent your cat from scratching you.


To use nail caps, start by trimming your cat's nails and cleaning them thoroughly. Then, gently push the nail cap onto the claw. You can use a small amount of adhesive to keep the cap in place. Nail caps typically last for about 4-6 weeks and will fall off naturally as your cat's nails grow. Remember to monitor your cat's paws regularly to make sure the caps stay in place and replace them as needed. Nail caps are a humane and safe way to protect your home and keep your cat happy and healthy.

Other ways to prevent your cat from damaging furniture or scratching you include ensuring that your cat has access to scratching posts and toys to satisfy their natural instincts. If your cat scratches you during playtime, try redirecting their focus to a toy or treat.
