Enhance comfort and prevent pain
Nail trimming isn't just about preserving your floors; it's crucial for your dog's well-being. Overgrown nails can cause discomfort and various health issues. They can hinder movement, leading to pain and potential injury. This discomfort impacts their enjoyment of walks and play, affecting their physical and mental health.
Additionally, long nails can cause your dog to adjust its posture unnaturally, leading to joint problems. Regular pawdicures not only keep your dog looking tidy but also helps maintain their comfort and health.
