There comes a time about every two weeks when the dog’s nails need to be trimmed…. Oh boy. I always know it’s time becuase I end up with a sweater snag or hole in a blanket. And that time has come. Pedicures for all the pups!
I always start by trimming the nails, then filing them so they are rounded. Filing the nails makes all the difference although it may seem a bit silly. I just use a piece of sandpaper. It’s easier to manipulate around each nail then a file.
And since we’re being fancy today I’m going to add a bit of flair to her nails. I use the doggy nail polish for them. It’s non-toxic and dries quickly so they don’t smudge.
Last I’m going to rub a bit of coconut oil into her paw pads and in between her digits. She tends to get inter-digital cysts, but they don’t happen as often since I’ve been doing her little pedicure routine.
And that’s all! It does take some time but it’s totally worth it. Now she will look all pretty for the festival we’re going to on Saturday!
