Q. I have tried everything to cut my dogs nails and it is impossible. Dremel and clippers. They are causing her a lot of pain. What should I do?
A. Nail trimming should not be painful unless you are getting the quicks. Try clipping or grinding the very smallest bit of nail that you can for a while, but you will have to do it every week so the nails don't grow too long. Try having someone let her lick a cup of ice cream while you work--this may help to distract her. Get her used to your handling her feet often when you are not doing her nails.
