• How do i cut my american bulldogs nails

    Hi Becky,
    When trimming a pet’s nails, it is very important to keep this a positive experience. The most important thing to do is to get your dog comfortable with having their feet handled and then also used to the nail trimmers. If your pet’s nails are black that can make trimming them more difficult. If they are clear, you should be able to visualize the pink area within the nail that you want to avoid cutting. Often, you can work with your veterinarian or their staff to have them demonstrate how to trim your pet’s nails correctly and also discuss how to keep it positive.
