What is the safest way to trim a puppy's toenails if they are black?
I have this problem with my black Lab. It is impossible to see the vein, and very easy to clip too close. The vet suggested clipping a very small portion, and then waiting 5 days, clip another little bit, etc. Even if you nip them as long as you have a septic pencil or some such, the bleeding will stop quickly. Of course you will feel bad, and it will be difficult to get the dog to co-operate in the future. I let a professional do my dog's nails. I just don't feel confident enough.
We have a Newfoundland dog who has black nails and we have always trimmed her nails ourselves.
1. Get a nail clipper the right size for your dog. Larger dogs will need a sturdier blade than smaller ones.
2. One person holds the dog gently on one side while the other one will clip the nail. If you can't see the quick (the vein) then it is a good idea to clip the toenails regularly to avoid cutting it. If the nails are long then you clip a little and wait a week. The quick will retreat and you can clip a little more. We keep a product nearby in case we cut it and also some baking soda.
It's really easy and once you get your dog used to the procedure it takes about 5 minutes. Our newf at 13 months weighs 125 lbs and she just lies there until we are done....
I am a pet groomer. My suggestion for trimming your puppy's nails is to look at the nail. Is the tip of the nail hooked at all? You will want to ideally clip at that point, so it will receed the quick (or the vein) and keep the nails shorter.
If you happen to quick the nail (cut too short), you can apply chapstick or flour, just to name a couple of household items. Styptic powder is a good thing to keep around if you those items are in supply.
Good luck! And ALWAYS have a partner to help you with trimming nails!!
i do it in tiny segments. u don't necessarily have to wait a week. but just do it gradually. also, if u clip and the middle of the nail is really dark (i mean the middle of the slice) than you are nearing the quick - stop
A great way to shorten your dog's toenails is to use a dremel-type tool with a rotating sanding drum to grind the nail down. You can see/judge how close you are to the quick and it leaves a nice smooth finish on the end of a nail. Most dogs react less negatively to this method than to the pinching of a nail clipper.
Just walk the dog on concrete or asphalt, it wears down there nails over time so just walk your dog on a sidewalk whenever you do and it will keep the nails short.
You should NOT remove the puppys toenails! it would be better to trim them instead. but please do not completely remove his nails. most dogs need them daily for walking or running around to get a good grip so they dont slip. well hoped i helped. please take my advise and DONT remove his toenails.

Because you're doing it wrong. Answer: Maybe you're too fussy and you're trying to trim them as short as possible. Anyway, 1 hour is bad, but it's not as bad as the last time I trimmed my toenails, which took an incredible 4 hours! I had to stop several times, to stretch and relax my sore legs from being hunched over for so many hours. I don't know why it would take anybody 10 minutes… Read More

New Zealand national sports teams wear a variation of black, silver and white - mainly black in most instances. The sports teams are usually named after the colours they wear.

If you are talking about a plastic trim, the best way to remove it is by spraying a wax remover product like McKee's 37 Wax Remover for Plastic, directly on a towel and gently applying it to the plastic trim. It is recommended that you use a trim protectant product after removing the wax, to protect the plastic trim. Read More

That depends, but the safest time is immediately after it flowers. The harder you cut and the thicker and older the wood you cut into, the longer recovery will take. This is why it must be done fairly early in the season. Read More

You can remove the dewclaws, which is the little claw that sets up high inside of the front leg and sometimes in certain breeds, the hind legs. It should be done between the ages of 3 - 5 days. Otherwise it is a major surgery. Their regular claws or toenails should never be removed. You can clip/trim them and should. Get yourself a nail trimmer and have someone show you the proper way to clip… Read More

A guinea pig cannot be declawed - you will have to learn to handle him differently so he does not scratch you. Perhaps holding him in a towel would help. You can also trim his toenails (carefully so you don't cut the quick) to keep them from growing as long and sharp. Read More

Walking the dog on pavement may wear the claws down so you'll never need to trim them. If you hear the claws clicking on the floor or the pavement, you probably ought to trim them back. A good target length for a medium size dog is about a quarter inch. Cutting them too close will injure the dog. One thing to bear in mind is that if you don't at least go through the motions… Read More
