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.
