IS PROUD TO BE A

Nail trims are a common source of stress for pets and owners alike, but there are many things you can do to set yourself and your pet up for success with at-home nail care.

Before You Start

  • Be sure your pet has a nonslip surface such as a towel, rug, or yoga mat to stand on. Slippery floors or unstable surfaces are stressful for animals.

  • Use calming scents such as lavender or chamomile if you have them. Better still, use calming pheromones such as Adaptil for dogs or Feliway for cats.

  • Play soft, calming music in the background, such as classical, species-specific, soft rock, or reggae.

  • Have a good supply of your pet’s favorite pea-sized, soft, delicious treats ready to go.
