Dog Grooming- Nail Trim - Forest Hills, Queens
Our pets love us. They want to be around us, and sometimes they get excited and tend to jump all over us! Enthusiastic pet love can lead to accidental scratches and damage to our furniture. Our canine friends mean us no harm, but still, their sharp nails can hurt. No one likes scratches from our pet's overgrown nails. Long nails can be dangerous for the dog and the people around you, especially children. The last thing you want is for your pet to scratch your child and for the scratch to get infected.
Nail trims are also important to ensure that your pet doesn’t scratch or damage any furniture in your home. Hardwood, laminate, and even vinyl flooring can become scratched just by pets with overly long nails walking and running in the home. Pet nails can also do damage to doors and woodwork, especially if your pet has a habit of scratching when he or she wants to go outside.
Pet nail trim technicians have to be cautious and careful. Unlike people, who have fingernails made of non-living tissue at the tips, dogs and cats have nails with living tissue underneath the hard surface. This tissue is fed by a blood vessel, and nail trimmers who aren’t very careful can cut too deeply, causing the blood vessel to bleed. This is painful to your pet because they also have living nerves inside their nails. Pets who have had painful experiences with nail trimming in the past may be fearful, which is why our specially trained pet grooming specialists take the time to be patient and understanding with your animal friend.
Nail trims are also important because chipped, cracked, or split nails can cause pain to your pet. Proper nail maintenance helps ensure that your pet doesn’t get uncomfortable broken nails. This is a case where an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
In addition to nail trims, your pet’s paws are cleaned and moisturized to clean away all of the dirt and grime they picked up during their dog walks. Moisturizing is especially important in the wintertime. When private homes and businesses put salt out onto their doorsteps and walkways to help melt the ice, the salt compounds get into the bottom of your dog's delicate skin. Irritation to the paws is noticeable when your dog is seen licking their paws more often than usual or scratching and chewing around the affected area. Our dog salon services will help keep your pet’s paws in good and healthy condition.
Our mobile dog grooming services can especially be helpful to you during the winter months. Rather than walking to a grooming salon on a snowy day, let our specialists come to you. Just like every pet is not comfortable around the blow-dryer, not every pet tolerates having their nails trimmed. Our gentle, caring dog groomers will take special time with your reluctant or tense pet.
Call us today to schedule an appointment for nail trims, bathing, blow-drying, hair cuts, and any other pet grooming services you may need. Our gentle, caring staff will take great care of your pet, even if your pet doesn’t love getting his or her toenails cut.
