Generally, nails should be trimmed or filed when they start to touch the ground. This can vary based on many factors including lifestyle. Some might not need very often if filed on sidewalk, except the dewclaw. And others might need weekly or monthly attention. Whichever the case, we can help!
Overgrown nails can break easily and below the quick, which can be very painful. Long-term overgrowth can cause difficulty with walking, pain and soreness and potentially contribute to the development of arthritis.
Frequent & fast paced walks on the sidewalk can help wear down nails and increase time between trimmings.
